GRAND MASTER S ADDRESS 

My Brethren: 

It was indeed a very great honor you conferred 
upon me one year ago when you elected me Grand 
Master of this Grand Lodge. I do not believe that I 
fully realized, at the time of my election, how great 
the honor really was and I am sure I did not adequate- 
ly express my appreciation. May I now say that as 
the year has passed quickly by and as I have visited 
as many Lodges, Districts and other Grand Jurisdic- 
tions as time and strength would permit, there has 
been a growing appreciation of the honor and respon- 
sibility of being permitted to serve as your Grand 
Master. From the bottom of my heart I thank you 
for that great privilege. 

I welcome you, the members of this Grand Lodge. 
Some of you have been attending regularly for a 
number of years but many of you are here today for 
the first time. I do hope you will find all the sessions 
enjoyable, helpful and inspiring. 

I also extend a most cordial welcome to our 
many distinguished visitors from other Grand 
Lodges, both of Canada and sister Grand Jurisdic- 
tions from other countries and particularly from our 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 41 

splendid neighbours to the south. I hope there will 
be an opportunity to hear from s-ome of these dis- 
tingnished leaders before Grand Lodge closes. 

This is the 107th Annual Communication and 
we are again privileged to meet in this great City 
of Toronto. The attendance at Grand Lodge is now 
so large that it simply is not feasible to meet in any 
other city in the Province. We know this involves 
extensive travelling for some of you and occasionally 
we are asked if we could not return to the former 
system of meeting periodically in other centres. 
Thought, of course, has been given to the suggestion 
but the difficulties are prohibitive. This, of course, 
places a very heavy burden upon the Chairmen and 
members of the various Committees in this area, who 
have the responsibility of making all the necessary 
and detailed arrangements. We owe them a tremen- 
dous debt of gratitude. 

NECROLOGY 

Scarcely had the sound of the gavel signalled 
the closing of our last Communication, or so it seem- 
ed, when our hearts were saddened by word of the 
death of our gi-eatly beloved friend and Past Grand 
Master, M.W. Bro. James P. Maher. He died on 
August 2, 1961. His passing meant the loss to our 
Grand Lodge of six of its Past Grand Masters within 
the short space of two years. 

During the year we have also been saddened by 
the loss through death of two members of the 
Board of General Purposes. R.W. Bro. George F. 
Clark and R.W. Bro. H. B. Coxon. 

We now record the following in grateful tribute 
to their memory. 

JAMES PATTERSON MAHER 

James Patterson Maher was bom in Toronto on 
February 6, 1890, of Irish parents who moved to 
Picton, Prince Edward County, Ontario, while he was 



42 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

still very young-. He spent his boyhood days and re- 
ceived his Public and High School education in 
Picton. He frequently referred to his fond memory 
of his boyhood friends and the beauties and wonders 
of Prince Edward County. 

In 1909 he returned to Toronto where he shortly 
afterward became eng-aged in the manufacturing and 
retailing of shoes. He was so industrious, trust- 
worthy and respected that soon his business beg^an 
to expand until at the time of his death Maher Shoe 
Stores were located in communities in almost every 
part of Ontario. He was deeply respected and loved 
by his many employees and they, like we, must 
sorely miss him. 

Notwithstanding M.W. Bro. Maher's concen- 
tration on his ever-growing" business and his loyal 
devotion to Masonry he yet found time to render 
public service in very many directions. He was a 
Director of the National Sanatorium, Chairman of 
the Toronto City Planning- Board, and a member of 
the Metropolitan Toronto Planning Board, the 
Toronto Board of Trade, the Property Owners' As- 
sociation and, during the war years, was a Director of 
the Advisory Committee of the Wartime Prices and 
Trade Board. His interest in youth and amateur 
sports was manifested by his sponsoring competitive 
hockey, baseball and soccer teams. 

Of course, it is mostly as a Mason that we cher- 
ish his memory and today pay him this loving tribute. 
He was initiated in York Lodge, No. 156, Toronto, in 
1912, was its Worshipful Master in 1930, District 
Deputy in 1934, and since 1939 has been a member 
of our Grand Lodge Board of General Purposes. In 
1947 he was elected Deputy Grand Master and in 
July, 1949, he became Grand Master, an office which 
he filled with great honor and distinction. He was 
also a member of the Royal Arch, the Scottish Rite 
and the Royal Order of Scotland. In 1949, he was 
made an Honorary Member of the Supreme Council, 
33 degrees. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1962 43 

The Funeral Service was held on August 4th 
in St. Michael and All Angels Anglican Church, 
Toronto, of which he was a very devoted member 
for many years. The Service was attended by your 
Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master, the Past 
Grand Masters and Grand Secretary, members of the 
Board and a large number of his many Masonic 
friends. 

We greatly miss him but his influence will long 
be felt. 

"For when a good man dies 
For years beyond our ken. 
The light he leaves behind him 
Falls upon the paths of men." 

GEORGE FREDERICK CLARK 

George Frederick Clark was born in Hamilton, 
Ontario, on December 11th, 1891, and resided in 
Hamilton all his life. His Masonic career commenced 
when he was initiated into Acacia Lodge, No. 61, on 
April 22nd, 1914. He became Worshipful blaster in 
1938. He was elected Grand Junior Warden in 1946, 
and in 1948 he was elected a Member of the Board 
of General Purposes. He made a valuable contri- 
bution to the work of Grand Lodge as Chairman of 
the important Committee on Benevolence from 1955 
to 1960. R.W. Bro. Clark was also a Charter Member 
of The Lodge of the Ancient Landmarks, No. 654. 

Few men have been more public spirited than 
he was and the citizens of the City of Hamilton 
recognized this when he was made "Citizen of the 
Year" in 1954. At one time or another he served 
as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Ham- 
ilton General Hospital, Chairman of the Hamilton 
Housing Authority, Chairman of the Winter Employ- 
ment Committee and was a former President of the 
Ontario Chamber of Commerce. 

He was a life-long member of Livingston United 
Church and for many years was Chairman of its 
Board of Stewards. 



44 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Long- associated with Appleford Paper Products 
Company, he rose to the office of President, a posi- 
tion which he held until his retirement. 

He passed to the Grand Lodge Above on Jan- 
uary 7th, 1962. The funeral service was from 
Livingston United Church in Hamilton. Your Grand 
Lodge was represented by the Grand Master, Past 
Grand Masters, Grand Secretary and a large number 
of Past and Present Grand Lodge Officers. I can- 
not refrain from speaking with some personal feel- 
ing of R.W. Bro. Clark's death. He and I were very 
closely associated in Acacia Lodge, No. 61. We were 
appointed to office at the same time and passed ud 
the line together, until finally, when I was Master, 
he was Senior Warden and, of course, succeeded me 
as Master. 

Your lost friends are not dead but gone before, 
Advanced a stage or two upon that road. 
Which you must travel in the steps they trod. 

HERMAN (BILL) COXON 

I little expected one year ago when I appointed 
R.W. Bro. Coxon to fill a vacancy on the Board of 
General Purposes that I would today be reading his 
obituary. 

R.W. Bro. Herman Coxon, who was known to 
all his friends as Bill Coxon, was bom in Granton, 
Ontario, on September 7th, 1893. After completing 
his education his earliest business association was 
with the firm of Gordon McKay Limited of Toronto, 
which company he later left to assume an executive 
position with Gowdies Limited of Kitchener, Ontario. 
He retired about 5 years ago for reasons of health 
and moved to London where he resided with his wife, 
the former Nora Walden. 

R.W. Bro. Coxon was a member of St. John the 
Evangelist Anglican Church, Kitchener, which he 
continued to support after moving to London. In 
London he attended and supported St. Paul's 
Cathedral. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1062 45 

In 1915 he was initiated in Granton Lodge, No. 
483, and later affiliated with Twin City Lodge, No. 
509, Kitchener, and became Worshipful Master of 
that Lodge in 1945. In 1951 he was elected Grand 
Registrar and in 1955 was made an Honorary Mem- 
ber of St. John's Lodge, No. 209 A. He was appoint- 
ed to the Board of General Purposes in 1961. 

R.W, Bro. Coxon made a splendid contribution 
to Masonry as Chairman, for a number of years, of 
Masonic Education in Wellington District and was 
recognized as an authority on Masonic ritual. 

A Masonic Memorial Service, conducted by the 
Officers of St. John's Lodge, No. 209A, was held on 
April 4th, 1962, at Logans Funeral Home, London, 
in which the Deputy Grand Master and many Past 
Grand Lodge Officers took part. Interment was in 
St. Mary's Cemetery, St. Mary's, Ontario. 

MEMORIAL SERVICE 

The Grand Master invited the Grand Chaplain, 
R.W. Bro. Canon A. J, Anderson, to the dais. Under 
the Grand Chaplain's direction the following Mem- 
orial Service was held. 

Grand Chaplain: 

"I heard a voice from heaven saying unto 
me, Write, from henceforth blessed are the dead 
which die in the Lord: Even so, said the Spirit, for 
they rest from their labours". 

(A brief period of silence was observed.) 

PSALM 130 (Read responsively.) 

HYMN: "0 God of Bethel, By Whose Hand". 

Grand Chaplain: Let Us Pray: 

Almighty and Eternal God, who art the Source 
of life and health, we remember with thanksgiving 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

these our Brethren, who, having finished their course 
on earth, have passed to the Grand Lodge Above. 
We pray that their lives of service and example of 
faithfulness may inspire us who follow them to 
greater and more fruitful service to Thy honour and 
glory. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Almighty God, Father of all mercies, and giver 
of all comfort; deal graciously, we pray thee, with 
those who mourn, that, casting every care on thee, 
they may know the consolation of Thy love. Through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. 

Almighty God, with whom do live the spirits of 
them that depart hence in the Lord, and with whom 
the souls of the faithful are in joy and felicity: We 
praise and magnify thy holy Name, or all thy servants 
who have finished their course and kept the faith; 
and com.mitting our brethren into thy gracious keep- 
ing, we pray that we, with all those that are de- 
parted in the true faith of thy holy Name, may have 
our perfect consummation and bliss, both in body 
and soul, in thy eternal and everlasting glory; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the God of the spirits of all 
flesh : Multiply, we beseech thee, to those who rest 
in the Lord, the manifold blessings of thy love, that 
the good work which thou didst begin in them may 
be perfected unto the day of Jesus Christ. And of 
thy mercy, heavenly Father, grant that we, who 
now sei-ve thee here on earth, may at the last, to- 
gether with them, be partakers of the inheritance 
of the Saints in light; for the sake of the same thy 
Son Jesus our Lord and Saviour. Amen. 

THE LORD'S PRAYER. 

The Lord bless you, and keep you. The Lord 
make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious 
unto you. The Lord lift up his countenance upon 
you, and give you peace, both now and evermore. 

Amen. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 47 

The brethren resumed their seatsi and the 
Grand Master continued his Address. 



RECOGNITION OF ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF 
ACTIVE EXISTENCE 

We have reached the time in the history of our 
Grand Lodge when more and more lodges are present- 
ing their claims for recognition for 100 years of 
continued active existence. During the past year 
three lodges have qualified for this recognition and 
have been gi'anted permission to wear gold braid in 
accordance with section 262. 

(a) Friendlv Brothers' Lodge, No. 143, Iroquois, 
as of April 19, 1961. 

(b) Irving Lodge, No. 154, Lucan, as of January 
28, 1962. 

(c) Peterborough Lodge, No. 155, Peterborough, 
as of February 15, 1963. 



LODGE CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS 

It has been a matter of great regret to me that 
I have been unable to attend all of the lodges having 
centennial celebrations during the year. I did at- 
tend all that it was possible for me to attend. The 
lodges having such special anniversaries were as 
follows : — 

(a) Tecumseh Lodge, No. 144, Stratford, on Sept- 
ember 14, 1961, the Grand Master being the 
guest speaker. 

(b) Grand River Lodge, No. 151, Kitchener, on 
September 26, 1961, the Grand Master being 
the guest speaker. 

(c) Mississippi Lodge, No. 147, Almonte, on Oc- 
tober 7, 1961, M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, Past 
Grand Master, being the guest speaker.

on October 20, 1961, M.W. Bro. H. L. Mart>Ti, 
Past Grand Master, being the guest speaker. 



48 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

(e) Burns' Lodge, No. 153, Wyoming, on May 25, 
1962, the Grand Master being the guest 
speaker. 

(f ) Union Lodge, No. 9, Napanee, one of our old- 
est lodges, celebrated its 150th Anniversary 

on March 11, 1962. It was with deep regret 
that I found it impossible to be present. I 
could only send congratulations. 



APPOINTMENTS 

(a) Owing to the death of Pv.W. Bro. H. B. Coxon 
on April 2, 1962, a vacancy occurred on the Board 
of General Purposes, which I filled by appointing 
R.W. Bro. James J. Talman for the balance of our 
late R.W. Bro. Coxon's term. 

(b) It was with much regret that I accepted the 
resignation of R.W. Bro. Dr. Frank ShannoH, 
Chairman of the Blood Donors' Committee, be- 
cause of ill health. I appointed R.W. Bro. Dr. 
George E. Turner of Windsor and am grateful 
to him for accepting the appointment. I am 
glad to learn that Dr. Shannon has largely re- 
gained his health and is able to be with us at 
this Communication of Grand Lodge. 

(c) Owing to the death of M.W. Bro. James P. 
Maher there was a vacancy on the Award Com- 
mittee for the William Mercer Wilson Medal. 
By our regulations members of this Committee 
must be Past Grand Masters and I appointed 
M.W. Bro. T. H. Simpson to fill this vacancy for 
the balance of our late M.W. Bro. Maher's term. 

(d) On January 29, 1962, I was pleased to appoint 
V.W. Bro. Robert J. Woods of Hugh Murray 
Lodge, No. 602, and Harry L. Martyn Lodge,

invested with the regalia of his office by M.W. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn.

LTnion Lodge, No. 9, until he departed overseas 
on September 18, 1941, on active service and did 
not return until the end of hostilities. During

in his stead. The Lodge now asks that the rank 
of Past Master be given to W. Bro. Black. I so 
recommend. 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

<b) Wor. Bro. Gk)rdon A. Gardner, Master of Rich- 
mond Lodg-e, No. 23, died on March 17, 1962, 
after serving as Master for about nine months.

Master posthumously. 

(c) Owing to a change in the date of installation, 
Wor. Bro. L. T. Oldfield served as Master of 
Alma Lodge, No. 72, three weeks short of the 
prescribed twelve months. I recommend that he 
be given the rank of Past Master. 

(d) Owing to a change in the Bylaws of St. James 
Lodge, No. 73, Wor. Bro. John G. Bradley served 
as Master nine days short of the prescribed

(e) Owing to a change in the date of installation, by 
dispensation, Wor. Bro. John McLean served as 
Master of St. John's Lodge, No. 81, two weeks 
short of the required twelve months. His at- 
tendance was excellent. I recommend that he 
be given the rank of Past Master. 

(f) Wor. Bro. F. A. Hunt served as Master of Doric 
Lodge, No. 121, for only eleven months. The 
Senior Warden was transferred out of town by 
his employers and was unable to stand for elec- 
tion as Master, delaying the elections one month. 
W. Bro. Hunt was elected and installed as Master 
but was unable to complete the required twelve 
months. I recommend that he be given past 
rank. 

(g) Owing to a change in the date of installation, 
Wor. Bro. Arnold W. Harris served as IVIaster of 
Tuscan Lodge, No. 195, for eleven months, being 
one month short of the required time. His at-

TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 51 

(h) St. Alban"s Lodge, No. 200, was obliged to 
change the night of its installation because of 
the dedication of their new Temple. Wor. Bro. 
Cecil Fairbairn therefore served four days short 
of the required twelve months. I recommend 
that he be given past rank. 

(i) Owing to a revision of the Bylaws of Lancaster 
Lodge, No. 207, Wor. Bro. Leonard M. Fourney 
served twelve days short of the required twelve 
months. I recommend that he be given past

(j) Highgate Lodge, No. 336, applied for past rank 
for Wor. Bro. George Bieber last year. The 
request was gi-anted by M.W. Bro. C. M. Pitts, 
Grand Master, but was inadvertently overlooked 
and was not included in his recommendations. 
I now recommend that Wor. Bro. Bieber be 
' given the rank of Past Master, nunc pro tunc. 

(k) The installation of Wor. Bro. James F. Arm- 
strong in Huron Lodge, No. 392, was delayed 
one month because of his illness. He had a 
perfect attendance during his term. I recom- 
mend that he be given past rank. 

(1) Wor. Bro. A. Newton Reid served three days 
shoi-t of the required twelve months as Master 
of Forest Lodge, No. 393, through no fault of 
his. His attendance has been very good. I 
recommend that he be given past rank. 

(m) Owing to a change in Bylaws, Wor. Bro. GaiTy 
Norman Fee was unable to serve as ^Master of

of Dominion Lodge, No. 615, on December 15, 
1960, and died on July 1, 1961. The Lodge asks 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

that he be given the rank of a Past Master post- 
humously. I so recommend. 

(o) Owing to the change, by dispensation, in the 
date of installation of Wor. Bro. Rudy E. Stubel, 
in St. George Lodge, No. 243, he served as 
Master four weeks short of the required twelve

rank. 

(p) Wor. Bro. G. C. Crampton, Master of St. John's 
Lodge, No. 63, died on December 25, 1961, after 
serving since his installation on June 14, 1961, 
some months short of the prescribed time. I 
recommend that he be given the rank of Past 
Master, posthumously.

from our General Fund totalling $2,700.00 and ox>- 
portioned as follow^s: —

Toronto District "4".

January 18, 1962, by R.W. Bro. Charles B. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 58 

Rycroft, D.D.G.M. of Ontario District. This 
lodg-e was named after the late David T. Camp- 
bell who at his death left 30 per cent of the 
residue of his estate to Composite Lodge No. 30, 
Whitby, in trust, the income from which is to 
be used to assist deserving- boys to continue 
their education. To date the lodge has re- 
ceived well over $100,000. and each year is 
assisting many boys who otherwise could not 
continue their education. 

(c) Eastern Lodge, U.D., Cornwall, on March 27, 
1962, by R.W. Bro. R. A. Stewart, D.D.G.M. of 
Eastern District. 

(d) Oakridge Lodge, U.D., Byron, on June 7, 1962, 
by R.W. Bro. Ross C. Fuller, D.D.G.M. of London 
District. 



LODGES CONSTITUTED AND CONSECRATED 

Since our last Annual Communication one lodge 
has been constituted and consecrated. I was pleased 
to be able to attend and constitute and consecrate 
Aurum Lodge, No. 704, Timmins, on September 23, 
1961. Tlie hospitality of the Brethren of Timmins 
and the District was exceptionally gracious and 
greatly appreciated by R.W. Bro. McQueen and 
myself. 



LODGE ROOMS DEDICATED 

Lodge rooms of the following lodges have been 
dedicated during the year: — 

(a) Friendly Brothers' Lodge, No. 143. Iroquois, on 
the 20th of October, 1961, by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martvn, Past Grand Master. 

(b) Mercer Lodge, No. 347, Fergus, on the 26th of 
October. 1961, by M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn. Past 
Grand Master. 



B4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

(c) Blackwood Lodge, No. 311, Woodbridge, on the 
28th of November, 1961, by the Grand IMaster. 

(d) Scarborough Temple, Scarborough, on the 8th 
of FebruaiT, 1962, by M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, 
Past Grand Master. 

(e) Hiram Lodge, No. 490, Markdale, on the 2nd of 
April, 1962, by the Grand Master. 

(f) Northern Light Lodge, No. 266, Stayner, on the 
9th of April, 1962, by the Grand Master. 

(g) Henderson Lodge, No. 383, Winchester, on the 
4th of May, 1962, by the Grand Master. 

(h) Zeredatha Lodge, No. 220, Uxbridge, on the 4th 
of June, 1962, by the Grand Master. 

The hearty co-operation afforded by the various 
Grand Lodge Officers in assisting at these cere- 
monies of Dedication was of great value to M.W. 
Bro. Martyn and myself. 

Officers of lodges contemplating the erection 
of new lodge buildings or structural changes in ex- 
isting premises should always keep in mind the nec- 
essity of having their plans approved by the Grand 
Lodge Advisory Committee on Lodge Buildings of 
which R.W. Bro. Geo. T. Evans is the Chairman. 
This is not only required by the Constitution but 
can be of vital importance in assuring that buildings 
are architecturally sound, attractive and function- 
ally useful. 

It was a matter of great regret to me that I 
found it necessary to direct that a reprimand be ad- 
ministered in open lodge, to two members of the 
local building committee of Mercer Lodge, No. 347, 
Fergus, for proceeding with the construction of a 
building which did not meet with the approval or 
requirements of the Grand Lodge Committee. The 
reprimand was given only after a careful investi- 
gation of the whole matter by a committee apix)inted 
by M.W. Bro. Pitts and on the recommendation of 
that Cormnittee. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 19«2 B6 

VISITATIONS TO OTHER GRAND LODGES 
AND MASONIC BODIES 

It is one of the great privileges as well as re- 
sponsibilities of a Grand Master to accept many of 
the cordial invitations which he receives to attend 
the Annual Communications of other Grand Jurisdic- 
tions in Canada and in the United States. It is not 
possible to accept them all, but as far as it was 
possible your Grand Master and Grand Secretary or 
Deputy Grand Master or other appointed represent- 
ative has visited the Grand Lodges who have so in- 
vited us. These visits are indeed stimulating and 
instructive and we have always been received with 
great cordiality and warm hospitality.

by your Grand Master or other appointed represent- 
ative. 

(a) Grand Lodge of Illinois, on October 5, 1961, by

VISITATIONS WITHIN OUR OWN JURISDICTION 

During the year I have received many gracious 
invitations to attend as your Grand Master various 
lodge meetings, district receptions and other Mas- 
onic functions. I regret that it was necessary to 
decline a number of these because of conflicting 
dates or limitation of time and strength. However, 
in addition to my visits to other Grand Lodge Com- 
munications and centennial and other celebrations 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1W2 W 

already reported, I have visited the following dis- 
tricts. 

(a) Toronto Districts "1", "2" and "5" Joint Recep- 
tion, Toronto, March 14, 1962. 

(b) Windsor District Reception, Windsor, March 
29, 1962. 

(c) Victoria District Reception, Cambray, April 12, 
1962. 

(d) North Huron District Reception, Tiverton, May 
9, 1962. 

(e) Sarnia District Reception, Wyoming, May 25, 
1962, combined with the celebration of the 100th 
Anniversary of Bums' Lodge, No. 153. 

The warmth and friendliness of all these recep- 
tions have been so stimulating that it is difficult to 
adequately express the enjoyment and pleasure they 
have meant to me. 



SPECIAL OCCASIONS 

During the year I have attended as your Grand 
Master a number of Masonic and other functions 
which do not come under any of the general classifi- 
cations hereinbefore mentioned. 

I had the great pleasure of presenting to V.W. 
Bro. The Hon. Mr. Justice Ferguson, Grand Senior 
Deacon, the regalia of his office in Huron-Bruce 
Lodge, No. 611. I really requested this privilege 
because of the many pleasant years of association 
vdth him on the Supreme Court Bench of Ontario. 

Til ere were two outstanding events in my Mother 
Lodg-e, Acacia, No. 61. The one was the very gra- 
cious and heart-warming reception which the Officers 
and members tendered me. The other was the night 
in which, assisted by M.W. Bros. T. H. Simpson and 
C. M. Pitts, the Deputy Grand Master and other 
Grand Lodge Officers, I occupied the Master's chair 
when mv son was initiated into Masonry. 



58 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

On October 15th, 1961, a Memorial Service for 
M.W. Bros. W. J. Dunlop and J. P. Maher was held 
in St. Paul's Anglican Church, Toronto It was a 
deeply moving tribute to these gi^eat Masons. The 
scripture lessons were read by M.W. Bro. Martyn 
and your Grand Master. 

It was a unique and ever-to-be-remembered 
night on January 29th, 1962, in Harry L. ]\Iartyn 
Lodge, No. 696, when M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn 
installed his son, Murray, as Master of the lodge. 
I greatly appreciated the privilege of sharing in 
the significant occasion and the gracious hospitality 
extended both before and after the lodge meeting. 

R.W. Bro. Dixon was kind enough to drive me 
to Brampton on Sunday, March 25th, 1962, where I 
addressed the boys in the Ontario Training School. 
This is a school in which a splendid effort is being 
made to assist and train boys who, for one I'eason 
or another, have become delinquent. It was a pleas- 
ure to speak to them. They were a responsive and 
keenly interested and interesting audience. 

Having been previously initiated in Hamilton 
Chapter, No. 175, Royal Arch Masons, it was indeed 
an honor and thrilling experience to be exalted to 
the Holy Royal Arch Degi'ee by M. Ex. Companion 
Charles Emmett, Grand First Principal, and the 
Officers of Grand Chapter. 

R.W. Bro. Everon Flath became entitled this 
year to his 50 Year Past Master's Medal. How de- 
lightful it was to be asked to make the presentation 
and to hear the interesting, capable and witty re- 
sponse made by Dr. Flath. 

On April 18th I was honoured in being asked to 
present to our Grand Secretary, E. G. Dixon, in Elec- 
tric Lodge, No. 495, his Veteran Jubilee Medal sig- 
nifying 50 years a Mason. Many past and present 
Grand Lodge Officers were on hand to honor our 



TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1962 39 

Grand Secretary. There were many messages of con- 
gi'atulations from other Grand Jurisdictions in Can- 
ada and the United States. In a suitable reply R.W. 
Bro. Dixon said, among other things, he had been 
initiate^, passed, raised and installed by his father, 
an affiliated Past Master of Electric Lodge. The 
Lodge derived its name from the fact that so many 
of the Charter Members were associated in one way 
or another with the old Cataract Power Company. 

In a very delightful evening, in May, in Kilwin- 
ning Lodge, No. 565, Toronto, I met and was able to 
greet and congratulate Bro. Thomas Ross, now in 
his 101st year. 

GRAND MASTERS' AND GRAND SECRETARIES* 
CONFERENCES IN WASHINGTON 

Each year there are held in Washington con- 
current but separate conferences of the Grand 
Masters and Grand Secretaries of the Grand Lodges 
of Masons on this North American Continent. They 
are held for the purpose of discussing the many prob- 
lems which are constantly arising and for rendering 
such mutual assistance by suggestion and advice as 
the opportunity of meeting together affords. 

Your Grand Lodge was represented this year by 
your Grand Master, Deputy Grand Master, M.W. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn, Past Grand IVIaster, and R.W. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon, Grand Secretary. Tliese confer- 
ences are well organized and designed to be of the 
greatest assistance to those attending. They have 
no legislative authority. It seemed to your Grand 
Master that the problem that was uppermost in the 
minds of all the representatives this year was that of 
a falling-off in attendance at lodge meetings and a 
similar falling-off in membership. There was much 
discussion of the reasons for tliis condition; numer- 
ous suggestions were made for its solution but in 
the end the discussion always seemed to return to 
the necessity of strong, vigourous, efficient and 
dedicated leadership by the Master of the local lodge 



60 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and by those associated with him as Past Masters 
and Officers. No lodge can be successful under in- 
different leadership. M.W. Bro. Martyn is a valued 
member and Chairman of the Commission for In- 
formation for Recognition. Details of conditions in 
countries where Masonry is seeking recognition by 
other Grand Jurisdictions are carefully investigated 
and reported to the Conference. It happened this 
year that there was no clergyman among the Grand 
Masters and your Grand Master was asked to act 
as Chaplain of the Conference. It is difficult for 
me to understand why. 

GRAND LODGE MEMORIAL BUILDING 
AND FUND 

This is the first complete year in which our 
Grand Secretary and staff have been occupying our 
Grand Lodge Memorial Building. Residing, as I do, 
in Hamilton, I have had the opportunity of making 
full use of the Grand Master's office in the building. 
What a delight it has been for me, for R.W. Bro. 
Dixon, R.W. Bro. McQueen and the entire secretarial 
staff to work under conditions so comfortable, un- 
crowded and attractive. One is inclined to wonder 
why Grand Lodge was content for so many years to 
have its executive offices in the confined, incon- 
venient quarters on Gore Street. 

During the year very many Masons of our own 
Jurisdiction and other Jurisdictions have come to 
inspect the building. We have had visitors from 
West Germany, Australia, South Africa, England 
and many United States Grand Lodges. Favorable 
comment has invariably been made, particularly 
with reference to the Memorial feature of the build- 
ing. 

I directed that the Memorial Fund should offici- 
ally close on December 31st, 1961. Up to that date 
the sum of $60,696.00 had been contributed to the 
Fund and even since that time some contributions 
have continued to come in. They now total $62,430.00. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 61 

WTiile the Fund is now of f icially closed and no further 
appeals will be made, if there are some members or 
lodg-es who still feel they would like to have a share 
in the Memorial, their contributions will be hate- 
fully received and so applied and recorded. 

DISCIPLINE 

A candidate was initiated into Masonry in 
Flower City Lodge, No. 689, Brampton. An in- 
vestigating committee had been regularly appointed 
and had reported favorably on his application. The 
ballot was also favorable. Two days after his in- 
itiation it was learned that the day previous to his 
initiation the candidate had separated from his wife. 
It was also learned that he had previously been 
divorced. His initiation fee was paid by cheque but 
the cheque was returned "Not Sufficient Funds". 
Before the situation was brought to my attention 
the candidate had voluntarily returned to the Secre- 
tary of the lodge the Book of Constitution, the copy 
of the lodge's Bylaws and his dues card. The Secre- 
tary of the lodge quite properly referred the matter 
to the District Deputy Grand Master and he, in turn, 
referred it to me through the Grand Secretary. 

The first obvious observation is that there had 
been great carelessness and neglect on the part of 
the investigating committee as the candidate was 
not a fit and proper person, either financially or 
otherwise, to be admitted to the Craft. It cannot be 
overemphasized that the appointment of investig- 
ating committees is no mere formality but they 
should investigate fully the candidate's character 
and reputation, home conditions and domestic re- 
lations, his financial position and his church affili- 
ations. They should make their report honestly on 
the strength of information acquired by such a 
thorough investigation. 

In the present case, such an investigation surely 
would have disclosed that this candidate's application 
should not have been accepted. 



62 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

I ruled that, as the initiation fee is payable in 
advance, and as there had been no fee paid (the 
cheque having- been returned N.S.F.) the initiation 
of the candidate was void and despite his initiation 
he never v^^as a member of the lodge. I directed 
that his name be stricken from the roll and that 
Grand Lodge records be amended accordingly. 

This directive was read at the next regular 
meeting of the lodge. 

In fairness to the Worshipful Master and Offi- 
cers of Flower City Lodge they have accepted in 
good spirit the criticism of their carelessness and I 
am sure such a mistake will not occur in that lodge 
again. I hope it will not occur in any other. 

I might add that it is usually unwise to accept 
a cheque (particularly if not certified) in payment 
of the initiation fee. 



BLOOD DONORS 

I have had the opportunity of reading the Report 
of the Blood Donors' Committee which will be pre- 
sented to you later by R.W. Bro. Turner. 

In many respects it reveals the splendid contri- 
butions which Masons are making to this fine 
humanitarian service. The number of donors ranges 
from 563 in one district to no donors in 10 districts. 
Why are there 10 districts in which this service is 
not being rendered? I hope the newly elected 
District Deputies in these districts will make a 
special effort to have their districts organized for 
this service. 

Remember brethren — ^while the life you save 
will not be your own it may be the life of a near rela- 
tive or brother Mason. Suppose, however, it is only 
the life of a stranger, is not that worth-while? 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 63 

MEMBERSHIP 

It is regrettable that we show a loss of 322 in 
membership this year. Last year we recorded a 
small gain of 147. In 1946 we had a gain of 4,891 
members but since then the gain has been consistent- 
ly smaller year by year until last year it dropped to 
147 and now this year we have moved into the loss 
column. It is small comfort that this trend seems 
to be general in practically all the Grand Lodges on 
this continent. Can v,'e not do something to reverse 
the trend? For one thing there are far too many 
suspensions for non-payment of dues. I feel I should 
repeat and emphasize what M.W. Bro. Pitts said in 
his repoi-t one year ago, "It becomes abundantly clear 
that we have to stop our losses by N.P.D. and this 
can only be accomplished by the ardent and personal 
attention of, not only the Secretary of the lodge, but 
the Master and his Officers and the brethren who 
apply themselves to ascertain the cause of the 
brother's arrears and endeavour to assist him to 
solve his problems whether they be financial or 
emotional". There is one lodge in our Jurisdiction 
which has a very energetic but kindly and diplomatic 
Secretary and through his efforts there has not been 
a member in arrears for over 12 years. 



GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 

To-night the traditional Grand Master's Banquet 
will be held in the Canadian Room of the Royal York 
Hotel. I hope every brother who wishes to attend 
has been able or will be able to get a ticket. About 
1,500 persons can be accommodated and our exper- 
ience is that the demand for tickets always exceeds 
the supply. I am most happy to announce that our 
speaker is our own M.W. Bro. Archbishop W. L. 
Wright. M.W. Bro. Wright has been much in de- 
mand as speaker in other Grand Jurisdictions and it 
seems appropriate that we, too, should enjoy and 
'benefit from one of his inspiring addresses. 



64 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

APPRECIATIONS 

Before I conclude, I wish to gratefully acknow- 
ledge the service of those who have so ably assisted 
me in one capacity or another. I have been quite 
conscious of my limitations as Grand Master but 
have always been cheered and strengthened by the 
knowledge of the devotion of the Grand Lodge 
Officers. 

R.W. Bro. Dixon, your Grand Secretary, and his 
staff have been so efficient in their work and so 
kind in their consideration for the Grand Master that 
it becomes difficult to find language to properly 
express my appreciation. M.W. Bro. Martyn, as 
Custodian of the Work, M.W. Bro. Hearn, as Grand 
Treasurer and Chairman of Masonic Holdings, R.W. 
Bro. George McQueen, as Supervisor of Benevolence, 
V.W. Bro. Binney as Grand Director of Ceremonies, 
are only a few of the many who have combined to 
ably assist me. The District Deputy Grand Masters 
and the Grand Senior and Junior Wardens have been 
most faithful. The Grand Chaplain, too, R.W. Bro. 
Anderson, by his devotion and attendance, whenever 
possible, at Dedications and Divine Services, deserves 
my heartfelt thanks. The attendance of your Grand 
Lodge Officers at ceremonies of Dedication of Lodge 
Buildings has been a revelation to me. The distances 
which many of them travelled must have meant 
great inconvenience to them and a disturbance to 
their work, but notwithstanding this they were rarely 
absent. The Assistant Grand Chaplain, V.W. Bro. 
Stewart, merits special mention for his faithfulness 
at Dedications and other Grand Lodge ceremonies. 
There are many others who should be mentioned by 
■name but time does not permit. 

CONCLUSION 

As we enter upon another Masonic year, my 
brethren, who is there among us dare face that year 
with casual unconcern? We know that, throughout 
-the entire world, men's minds are filled with anxiety, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 65 

indeed, in many instances with actual fear. Inter- 
national tensions have been building up at an alarm- 
ing- rate. The dogs of war are straining at their 
leashes. There is the ever present possibility that 
some bone of national rivalry or discontent thrown 
in their midst will cause them to break loose. If 
the>' do, the world will be in the throes of an atomic 
war with its almost limitless powers of destruction. 

Has Freemasonry anything to offer the world 
in times like these? Well, so far as its influence 
extends I believe it has. It stands for belief in 
the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man. 
Most important of all, it is based upon a belief in a 
loving Providence figuratively referred to by us as 
The Great Architect of the Universe. I emphasize 
the word Universe. Do you believe that a loving 
Providence has brought our world, even though it 
be but a tiny fragment of the Universe, to the point 
of development where it shelters men who have the 
religious capacity to know and worship Him, the 
giver of every good and perfect gift, only to have 
it and them shattered by a few atomic or hydrogen 
bombs? I, for one, as a Mason, believing in the 
Fatherhood of God, refuse to believe He will allow 
it to happen. 

"This is the Victory that overcometh the world, 
even our faith." 

Fraternally and respectfully submitted, 

R. W. TRELEAVEN. 

Grand Master.

TORONTO. ONTARIO. 1962 «7 

sider and report to Grand Lodge on the Grand 
Master's Address. The motion was put by the 
Deputy Grand Master. 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
GRAND MASTER'S ADDRESS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. T. H. 
Simpson, and on motion of M.W. Bro, Simpson, 
seconded by M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, it was received 
and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipfuil The Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Grand Master's Address, to which the members of 
Grand Lodge have listened with such rapt attention and with 
real interest, is one which deserves all the commendation 
which your Committee can accord it. Most, if not all the 
members of Grand Lodge, are well aware that our Grand 
Master has served faithfully and well throughout the first 
year of his term of office. All who have come in contact 
with him have admired his work as an administrator. We 
have heard the inspiring and interesting addresses which he 
has delivered and, having met him, have learned to admire 
him and the real effort he is putting forward in this high 
and exalted office to which he has been elected. The record 
of his \isits alone indicates the remarkable energy and the 
great sincerity of our Grand Master and your Committee 
commend.* him for his excellent work during this first year 
of office. At the same time your Oommittee realize'S, as 
everyone must do, that this is a very large Masonic Jturisdic- 
tion and these visitations are trying on the health and 
constitution and we suggest, in the kindliest spirit, as we 
tihink vou would want us to do, that he should spare himself 
for this next year so that he may long be able to take part 
in giving guidance to this great institution. 

We concur in all he sayis with respect to the late Most 
Worshipful Brother James Patterson Maher and agree with 
it all. We also concur in his remarks with respect to those 
esteemed brethren. George Frederick Clark and Herman 
Coxon. They were both great members of the Craft and did 
much in their respective fields while they were with us. 
We note that several lodges, three in number, are entitled 
to recognition of IQO years of active ser\-ice and your Com- 
mittee approves of the Gi'and Master's recommendations. 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

We also approve of his remarks with respect to the various 
Lodge Centennial Celebrations. This all makes us realize 
that our Institution is becoming one of the old institutions 
of our Provinne and that we have a great influence in our 
respective communities. 

Your Committee endorses the remarks of your Grand 
Master with respect to the various lodge centennial celebra- 
tions and also approves of the appointments which he has 
made as refeiTed to in his Addiress. Your Committee agrees 
with the Grand Representative Appointments made by your 
Grand Master and also v/ith the various recommendations 
of appointments made by him for representatives of other 
Grand Lodges in this Jurisdiction. Your Committee also 
approves of the various grants of past rank made by your 
Grand Master and fully endorses his disposition of these 
matters. 

We approve of the donations that are recommended by 
the Grand Master in his Address. These are all most com- 
mendable and no doubt all \vill endorse the Grand Master's 
remarks in that regard. We rejoice with him in the faoti 
that four other new lodges have been instituted in this 
Jurisdiction and that one additional lodge has been con- 
stituted and consecrated. It is also most gratifying to us 
all to know that there are so many lodge rooms being re- 
modelled and newly built. It shows a great interest in the 
Order in the outlying jurisdictions. Again we approve of 
the remarks of the Grand Master ■with respect to the Grand 
Lodge Advisoiy Committee on Lodge Buildings and the 
splendid work that is being done by the Chairman of that 
Committee, R.W. Bro. George T. Evans. 

Your Grand' Master has been most active in his visit- 
ations to other Grand Lodges. It is significant of the Grand 
Master that he would wish to carry the torch of Freemasonry 
to other Jurisdictions, and we know that he does so \\'ith a 
great deal of pride and pleasure and brings great credit on 
our Grand Lodge in his efforts to do so. His visitations with- 
in his own Jurisdiction were necessarily reduced and everyone 
vd]\ approve of his doing so. He also refers to the Grand 
Masters' and Grand Secretaries' Conferences in Washington. 
These are splendid associations and all of us would want 
our Grand Master to be present at such important meetings. 
We agree vn^ih. his remarks respecting the Grand Lodge 
Memorial Building Fund. Nevertheless, while the Fund is 
officially closed, we agree with him that there may be and 
likely are many members who aWII still wish to contribute 
and show their interest in this fine Masonic Memorial which 
is a credit to our Craft and is so highly adtaired by everyone 
who sees it. Again we have noted the discipline which he 
has had to enforce and, while we regret to see that there 
are such unfortunate situations arising from time to time 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 69 

in the Craft, nevertheless it is impossible to avoid it in such 
a large institution. We agree with the Grand Master and 
endorse his action but we hope that all will take note of this 
and see that the recoixi of our Grand Lodge is kept as free 
as possible from any such unfortunate situations in the 
future. 

We are happy to note and most heartily endorse what 
the Grand Master says regarding blood donors. Those in 
charge of this Committee are to be highly commended. 

Regarding loss of membership, this is a matter of real 
concern to us all. For several years past there has been 
this situation arising and now. for the first time in several 
years, we have had a net loss, and that is to be regretted. 
However, we are going through a phase in our civilization 
and we must realize that these things come about and must 
be faced and they simply create a challenge to the rest of us 
to apply ourselves towards the work at hand and to see that 
the Order goes forward for the future the same as in the 
past. There are many distractions at the present time but we 
feel that once conditions again settle down Ave vAW find that 
matters fall into their proper places. Our Institution is 
such that it can stand the shock. It i.^ also a delightful 
reference which the Grand Master makes to the Grand 
Master's Banquet and the fact that the address of the evening 
will be given by Most Worshipful Archbishop W. L. Wright. 
It wi.]] be unquestionably a fine address and by one of our 
OAATi Past Grand Masters. We agree with what he says in 
appreciation of the Grand Secretary and the staff of Grand 
Lodge and all of those who are working to support the work 
of the Order in this Jurisdiction. The references in the 
conclusion are tj'pical of our Grand Master and reflect the 
thinking and the principles of his life. We can be proud 
that we have a Grand Master of the calibre and AAith the 
high standai'ds of the present incumbent of this office. 
We are delighted that he has come through such a busy 
year A\'ith such an excellent report to give us and we can 
say for the future, "Cany on, you are doing a great A\-K>rk, 
we are with you, we hope for you a great year in the next 
year ahead and for many years to come". 

This Committee consists, as is usual, of all the Past 
Grand Masters of our Grand Lodge. However, before 
closing, the Chairman may be pardoned for intixxiucing a 
personal note. For many years past your Chaimian has 
Ijeen closely associated with your Gi-and Master, an associ- 
ation which he has always valued highly. For many years 
we both practiced law in adjoining offices in the City of 
Hamilton in opposition to one another, of course. During 
that time we were constantly and almost daily thix)n-n to- 
gether on an intimate basis. During that same period your 
Chairman and your Grand Master both became members 



70 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of the same Lodg-e, Acacia Lodge, No. 61, in Hamilton. We 
both passed through the same offices joining together in the 
effort and taking our parts in building up that lodge which 
is today one of the great lodges of this Jurisdiction. Your 
Grand Mastei' was selecited to become a Justice of the 
Supreme Court of Ontario and, as such, served for many 
years on the Bench of that Court in a very capable and 
commendable manner, earning for him'self the respect and 
admiration of all members of bis selected profession. It was 
at one time hoped by many of us that your Grand Master 
would stand for the office of Grand Master of this Grand 
Lodge but, having been elevated to the Bench, it was for a 
time thought that he would no longer have any such aspir- 
ation. However, as time went on, your Grand Master retired 
from the Bench and now is fulfilling the highest office, that 
of Grand Master, and doing so in the most commendable 
manner. Your Chairman of this Committee became Grand 
Master and is now the Senior Past Grand Master of our 
Grand Lodge and again is closely associated with the 
Grand Master in furthering the work of this Order in this 
Grand Lodge. Again the old association is renewed and 
your Chairman finds himself now serving and preparing this 
report on the excellent work of your Grand Master during 
hiis first term in that office. It is a matter of great pride 
and joy. and I know thait the members vdll forgive your 
Chairman for introducing into this rei>oTt the personal 
character of this reference and the fact that your Chairman 
is so highly pleased vdth being in this position and being 
able to i-ecord these few remarks. 

All of which is frateraally submitted, 

On behalf of the Committee, 

T. H. SIMPSON, 

Chairman, 

LETTERS OF REGRET 

The Grand Secretary advised that several letters 
and communications had been received from Grand 
Masters, distinguished brethren and Grand Lodges 
extending most cordial fraternal greetings and best 
vdshes and expressing regret that they were unable 
to be present or represented.

The Grand Master invited the following brethren 
to the dais and presented them with their Com-

AUDITOR'S REPORT 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of 
Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I beg to report having completed the continuous 
monthly audit of accounts of the Grand Treasurer 
and of the Grand Secretary for the year ended 31st 
May, 1962, and I have verified the statements sub- 
mitted by the Grand Treasurer showing the receipts 
and disbursements of the General and the combined 
Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds for the year 
ended 31st May, 1962. 

The investment securities of the General, Mem- 
orial and Semi-Centennial Funds, as set out in the 



72 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

respective schedules accompanying the Grand Treas- 
urer's report, were produced by the Canada Perm- 
anent Trust Company for my inspection. I found 
them in order. 

I wish to extend my appreciation to the Grand 
Treasurer's Clerk and to the staff at the office of 
the Grand Secretary for their co-operation during 
the audit procedure. 

All of which is fraternally su/bmitted. 

H. FRANK VIGEON, C.A., 

Auditor. 

GRAND TREASURER'S REPORT 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Hearn, Grand Treasurer. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I submit for your consideration the Grand Treas- 
urer's report for the fiscal year, ended May 31st, 
1962, which shows in detail receipts and disburse- 
ments together with schedules of investments for 
General and Memorial Accounts. 

RECEIPTS: 

Income from dues and fees is in excess of the 
previous year by $6,292.85 while the revenue from 
investments has increased by $9,487.76. 

DISBURSEMENTS: 

Expenses, while within the budget limits, in- 
creased by $12,261.75, occasioned chiefly by bank 
interest on overdraft and a full year's rental on the 
new basis which was explained in last year's report. 

Benevolent requirements for the past year 
amounted to $59,377.42, a decrease from the previous 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 73 

year of $5,979.92. It should be stated here that, 
while requirements were less, the Committee on 
Benevolence have been quite diligent in their ap- 
proach to their obligation. 

You will be asked to approve the following 
donations: — 

U.N.I.C.E.F $ 400.00 

Bov Scouts (Ontario Division) . . 400.00 

Girl Guides (Ontario Division) . . 400.00 

Cancer Fund, Ontario 500.00 

Heart Fund, Ontario 500.00 

Ontario Crippled Children 500.00 



$ 2,700.00 

Our bank overdraft was paid off as of May 31st, 
1962. This meant, of course, the disposal of certain 
securities at a satisfactory price which liquidated 
our bank loan. This will save us considerable carry- 
ing- charges for the coming year. 

We acknowledge, with thanks, an additional 
sum of $14,000 received from the estate of the late 
Charles E. Sealey for the Memorial Account which 
has been invested in bonds. We are also appreciative 
of the continuing interest of the Toronto Lawn Bowl- 
ers in the amount of $50.00, the results of their 
Annual Tournament. 

You will note in the schedule of investments that 
Masonic Holdings debentures have been reduced by 
$20,000.00 from a year aero. Masonic Holdings re- 
deemed $20,000,00 during the year. The total Mas- 
onic Holdings debentures now stand at $372,000.00 
bearing interest at 5%. 

Our total resources continue to improve. In 
1961 thev stood at $1,417,889.62. this vear at Mav 
31st, 1962, the total for all accounts is $1,469,634.64, 
an increase of $51,745.02. 

I wish to record my sincere appreciation to the 
Grand Secretary and the members of his staff, the 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Auditor and the Grand Treasurer's Clerk for their 
continued co-operation with the Grand Teasurer. 

When everything is considered, the past year 
has been a very satisfactory one from the financial 
point of view. The Chairman of Audit and Finance 
has been extremely accurate in his forecast. Ex- 
penses have been kept well in line. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

J. A. HEARN, 
Grand Treasurer.

GRAND SECRETARY'S REPORT 

This report was presented by the Grand Secre- 
tary. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers 
and Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. 
of Canada, in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 



I present herewith my annual report for the 
year ended May 31, 1962, containing- a Summary 
of Receipts from various sources placed in the Gen- 
eral Fund; Details of Receipts in the General Fund 
and Ledger Balances as at May 31st, 1962; a Sum- 
mary of Receipts for the year ; Details of the Returns 
of Lodges as at May 31st, 1962, a Summary of the 
Receipts and Payments to the Grand Treasurer on 
account of the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds; 
and a Statement of the Receipts and Disbursements 
on the Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds Revenue 
Account. 

As an appendix to the Proceedings I have re- 
corded the details of the Returns of the 617 warrant- 
ed Lodges and three Lodges under dispensation, as 
of Decembr 31, 1961. 

After reporting net gains in membership for 
nineteen consecutive years I regret that I must 
report a net loss of 322, the first loss since 1942. 
Our total membership as of December 31, 1961, is 
136,091. 

Deaths exceeded last year's by only 10; resig- 
nations increased by 113, and we ask w-hy? Have 
we allowed 1,142 of our members to sever their 
connections with the Craft and deprive themselves 
of the privileges of Masonry without interviewing 
them and ascertaining the reason for their ^vith- 
drawal? Suspensions increased by 36, not a sub- 



82 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

stantial increase but I am sure if an organized effort 
were made to contact those who allow themselves to 
get in arrears before such arrears accumulate a very- 
substantial number of our members would be saved 
the embaiTassment of suspension. 

Against these losses we record 3,620 initiations, 
down 222; 763 affiliations, down 141; and 214 
restorations, up just 7. 

This year there was one new Lodge constituted 
and consecrated and we have four under dispens- 
ation, giving a total of 621 Lodges, which is an all 
time high. 

Many of our Lodges have become and are becom- 
ing conscious of the need for new or improved 
premises as the report of the Advisory Committee 
on Lodge Buildings will indicate. Other Lodges,which 
are without premises of their own or lack facilities 
for the comfort of the members, will, I hope, make 
plans for improvement of conditions.

are still three veteran members living who have

mark fifty years of service as a Past District Deputy 
Grand Master. They are: 

R.W. Bro. A. M. Fulton, Faithful Brethren

56, Sarnia. 
R.W. Bro. A. McLeod, Bay of Quinte Lodge,

To them, once again, we extend our warmest 
congratulations and our very best wishes. 



SIXTY YEAR PINS 

During the year 44 of our members have re- 
ceived Sixty Year Pins in recognition of sixty years 
or more of membership. Since the adoption of this 
Pin 338 holders of our Veteran's Jubilee Medal and 
23 holders of our Long Service Medal, of whom 2 
qualified this year, have received our Sixty Year 
Pin to their respective medals. We congratulate 
andl pay tribute to these staunch veterans of the 
Craft. 

FIFTY YEAR MEDALS 

Once again we are pleased to note that there is 
an increase, though slight, in members qualifying 
for our Veteran's Jubilee Medal (50 years a Mason). 
This year 406 qualified for the Medal and 16 Past 
Masters qualified for our Long Service Medal (50 
years a Past Master) . 

WILLIAM MERCER WILSON MEDAL 

Since our last Annual Communication four mem- 
bers have been awarded the William Mercer Wilson 
Medal for Meritorious Service: 

Bro. George Hardy Morden, Oakville Lodge, 

No. 400, Oakville. 
Bro. John Rodger Allan, Tuscan Lodge, No. 551, 

Hamilton. 
Bro. Alexander Gordon Spence, Cobden Lodge, 

No. 459, Cobden. 
Bro. James Broadley, National Lodge, No. 588, 

Capreol. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 8S 

In all 68 members have been awarded this dis- 
tin^ished Medal since its inception in 1945. 

My duties and responsibilities as Grand Secre- 
tary have been relieved considerably by a very com- 
petent and thoug-htful staff, each of whom has been 
so willing-, at all times, to do even more than is re- 
quired or expected of them to meet additional de- 
mands upon their time and energy. I could not ask 
for more. To each of them I proffer my sincerest 
thanks.

COMMITTEE OF SCRUTINEERS 

Tlie Grand Master appointed V.W. Bro. Robert 
Strachan, Chairman of the Committee of Scruti- 
neers, to supervise and count the vote at the election 
of Grand Lodge officers, with power to name the 
members of the Committee. 

REPORTS OF THE DISTRICT DEPUTY 
GRAND MASTERS 

The reports of the thirty-seven District Deputy 
Grand Masters were presented by the Grand Secre- 
tary and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by the Assistant to the Grand Secretary, 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 111 

they were received and referred to the Board of 
General Purposes. 

The Report of every District Deputy Grand 
Master is addressed to "The Most Worshipful the 
Grand Master, Officers and Members of the Grand 
Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada in the Province of 
Ontario." Each begins, "Most Worshipful Sir and 
Brethren," and every one ends, quite rightly, "Res- 
pectfully and fraternally submitted." To save space 
these foiTnalities are omitted from the beginning 
and end of each Report. 



ALGOMA DISTRICT 

To have had the honour and privilege of coming in con- 
tact with the warmth and fraternal friendship so evident in 
our lodges in Algoma District has been one of the happiest 
and rewarding experiences of my life, an experience to which 
r shall always look back with a most sincere feeling of 
thankfulness. 

I have visited each of the eleven lodges officially, and 
sometimes unofficially, and I am pleased to report that the 
condition of Masonry here is excellent. The ritualistic work is 
of a high order, carried out by the officers and Past Masters 
who take real pride and joy in their efforts. I found the 
financial condition of all lodges satisfactory; the books are 
well-kept and in perfect order, which is a tribute to the 
lodge secretaries. It is worthy of note that Terrace Bay 
Lodge. No. 662. has let the contract for the basement of a 
new temple and the brethren hope to occupy it this autumn. 
It appears that each lodge gets its sihare of young and 
intelligent candidates as new members, but even as we 
welcome youth into our fellowship, we are ever reminded 
that time marches on. as on some occasions I \vitnessed 
Fifty-Year Jubilee Medals presented to brethren who had 
done so much for the welfare of Masonry in past years. 

Durine the year, steady progress has been made in 
Masonic Education in all lodges under the guidance of Wor. 
Bro. D. E. C. Schoales whom I appointed as District Super- 
visor of Masonic Education. There ai'e talented brethren in 
all the lodges who take a keen interest in Masonic Education 
and many informative talks aire given by these brethren. 
I appointed Wor. Bro. A. N. Angus as District. Secretarj', 
and Very Wor. Bro. Rev. A. H. Johnston, M.A., D.D,, as 
District Chaplain. I am deeply grateful to them for their 



112 GRAND LODTiE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

assistance and encouragement tihroughout my year in office. 
Wor. Bro. Angns accompanied me on all my visits and proved 
a tower of strengrth. 

During the year several prominent brethren in the 
Dis'trict have answered the last solemn summons and are 
greatly missed. Three of these were Past Grand Lodge 
Officers in the persons of Rt. Wor. Bro. C. A. Goodeve, 
P.D.D.G.M.; Verv Wor. Bro. J. M. Allen. P.G.D.; and Very 
Wor. Bro. H. T. Middlemiss, P.G.S. Their love for the Craft 
and 'their friemd'ly dispHssition had won for them a high place 
in the esteem of the entire District. 

Among the highlights of the year were the celebrations 
of the 75th Anniversary of Fort William Lodge, No. 415, 
and the 50th Anniversary of Port Arthur Lodge, No. 499. 
Another highlight of the year was th6 visit of the Past 
Grand Lodge Officers of the District to my Mother Lodge, 
Fort William No. 415. Under the chairmanship of the late 
Rt. Wor. Bro. C. A. Gk>odeve, these brethren occupied the 
chairs for the evening and conferred a First Degree in a 
highly commendable and creditable manner. Their flawless 
work proved what I had said on many of my visits to the 
lodges, namely, that there is no loss of interest in Masonry 
by those who have served and I am happy to say that that 
fact was demonstrated on that memorable occasion. 

Several Church services have been held by the lodges of 
the District. On two occasions, in recognition of their 
Anniversaries, Fort William Lodge, No. 415, and Port Arthur 
Lodge. No. 499, respectivelv. extended an invitation to the 
District Lodges to attend Di\'ine Services with them. On 
each occasion I was honoured to read the lesson. It is 
gratifying to note the continued response and interest of 
the various lodges in the work of the Blood Donors' Com- 
mittees under thp direction of Rt. Wor. Bro. S. L. Knox, to 
whom I am deeply grateful. 

As I find my term of office drawing to a close, it is 
with a profound feeling of regret that I pass the mantle of 
office to my successor, for I realize that there is still much 
to be accomplished before I can feel fully satisfied that I 
have been worthy of the great honour conferred on me. In 
conclusion, I would like to thank all the brethren in the 
District for their loyal support, brotherly love and interest 
that have been accorded me. Tennyson has Ulysses say, in 
the poem with that title, "I am a part of all that I have met." 
Similarly, I feel that my year of office as D.D.G.M. will 
ever be a part of me.

BRANT DISTRICT 

I am pleased to submit, herewitih, my report on the year's 
work in Brant Masonic District. 

It has been a ereat honour to represent the Grand 
Master in Brant District. I shall always remember it as 
a happy and rewarddng year. 

My feelings of inadequacy in accepting the position were 
largely dissipated by the warm and friendly welcome ex- 
tended to me by every lodge in the District. This conveyed to 
me the affection and esteem in which the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge is held by the brethren in the District. 

It was my good fortune to have associated with me 
three capable and devoted Masons. My thanks and appreci- 
ation are extended to Wor. Bro. W. L. Keen. District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. Gordon P. Blight, Director of Masonic 
Education, and Bro. Ronald J. Warren, District Chaplain. 

I regret to reporti that Masonry is not thriving in Brant 
District as we would like to see it. The majority of lodges 
are reasonably busy yet some are suffering from lack of 
work. I believe this conforms with the condition of Masonry 
in general and I have urged the brethren, who may have 
reason to be concerned with this trend, to be of good courage. 
I have reason to believe a resurgence of fraternal interest in 
the smaller lodges will soon become evident again. 

I was most impressed on all of my visits with the 
sinceritv of purpose of the Wor. Master and the officers 
generally in the conduct of the work. I was likewise im- 
pressed with the numerous candidates received into Masonry 
on the occasion of my ^nsits. It was heart-warming, indeed, 
to note the favorable impression gained by the candidates. 

I would like to mentdon in this report my appreciation 
of the work being done by the Secretaries in all of our 
lodges. Their many years of seiwice indicate their devotion 
to the Craft. Likewise, t'heir knowledge of procedures is of 
incalculable value to the Worshipful Masters and officers. 

In every lodge I visited there was also evidence of the 
fine work being carried on by the Pasti Masters. In almost 
every lodge one could select a few upon whom such responsi- 
bility rests for the success of the institution. We must and, 
indeed, do depend very much on the work these brethren do. 

I have also appreciated the work of our District Past 
Masters' and Wardens' Association. Wor. Bro. Harris 
Featherston, has presided as President this past year with 
ithe capable assistance of the Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. R. 



114 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

W. E. McFadden. The latter has long been a tower of 
strength to Masonry in Brant District. 

I was pleased to attend a number of Church Services 
and this phase of our activity was climaxed at a District 
Service, held in Knox Presbyterian Church, Jarvis, on Sunday 
evening, May 20th. The body of the large church was filled 
with Masons from every lodge in the District and the Service 
was most impressive. Bro. Ronald J. Warren, District Chap- 
lain, delivered a stirring address which left a fine impression 
upon the congregation. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank all brethren of the Dist- 
rict for their kindness and support during the year. It was 
a year I shall cheris'h and remember as long as I live. 

A. LAIRD MILLER, D.D.G.M. 



BRUCE DISTRICT 

As my year as D.D.G.M. of Bruce District draws to a 
close, I wish to state that this has been one of tihe most 
enjoyable and rewarding years of my life. It has been one 
of great satisfaction, though one would hardly expect to 
accomplish everything he had hoped to do upon assuming 
office last July. 

Shortly after my installation I appointed Wor. Bro. 
Chester M. Merriam of Tara as District Secretary, a position 
which he ha? capably filled in spite of a very busy schedule 
in other fields. Bro. Alfred H. Stoppard of Hanover kindly 
accepted the important post of Supervisor of Masonic Edu- 
cation, for which he is eminently suited and which he dis- 
charged in a most impressive and efficient manner. In this 
capacity he has given a talk in each lodge, and has con- 
ducted tv.'o Lodges of Instruction, both of which were well 
attended and were enthusiastically received. 

Rev. Bro. Clifford Manning kindly agreed to accept, for 
a second term, the position of District Chaplain. He brings 
to us the valuable experience of having been a former 
District Grand Chaplain of the Grand Lodge of Quebec. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Geo. A. Robertson as District 
Treasurer, and Rt. Wor. Bro. Ross DeLong as Blood Donors' 
Chairman. While some activity has been reported in blood 
gi^^ng, no clinics have been held in the larger centres during 
mv teim, but we anticipate a considerable increase in the 
fall. 

The love and respect which our District holds for our 
Grand Master have at all times been reflected in the many 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 115 

courtesies extended to myself, my wife, and other visiting 
District Deputies. 

From the time of the meeting: called by Most Wor. Bro. 
H. L. Martyn, for the purpose of instructing the District 
Deputies of Grey, Bruce and North and South Huron, we have 
visited each other many times on official visits and ha/ve 
done so with profit and pleasure. 

All lodges but one have contributed to the Grand Lodge 
Memorial Fund, and I believe that this District, on the whole, 
has contributed pretty well according to its means. 

My wife and I were pleased to be able to attend, not 
only some of the Ladies' Nights in our District, but also 
some which were far distant. We also appreciated the 
numerous invitations to join in others, which, owing to 
weather or previous commitments, we were unable to attend. 

Our District was saddened during the year by the passing 
of several brethren to the Grand Lodge Above. One of 
these was Rt. Wor. Bro. Samuel W. Vogan, who was D.D. 
G.M. in 1950, and who had never missed an official visit 
in his own lodge, Saugeen. No. 197, Walkerton, since 1917. 
We cherish the memory of all of them in our hearts and 
extend our sympathy to those bereaved. 

On my official visits I attempted, as far as possible, 
to base my talks on the degree conferred, and to conclude 
by relating the symbols and lectures to our everyday living, 
keeping in mind the Sacred Volume whence all our principles 
are derived. Degrees were conferred in all lodges but one 
on mv official visits. While the work in most cases was 
done in a commendable m-anner. I was greatly impressed by 
t'he high calibre and careful preparation of the candidates, 
"niey should be kept in mind when choosing officers in the 
next few years. 

One of my most pleasant duties was pinning a 50 Year 
Medal on Bro. Walter R. Laidlaw at my official visit to 
Hanover. Another was extending a welcome when my lodge, 
Maple Ltaf, No. 362. Tara. held a reception, on behalf of 
the District, for Rt. Wor. Bro. W. M. Prentice, Grand Junior 
Warden. On this occasion he decorated Bro. James Duncan 
with a 50 Year Medal. Following the dinner a large audience 
enjoved his intensely interesting talk on the history and 
symbolism of Masonry. 

Although the Grand Master, Most Wor. Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven, did not visit Bruce District, I was privileged to 
be able to attend several of his official functions and recep- 
tions and to receive inspiration from his vast fund of wit 
and wisdom. 



116 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

A fitting climax to our Masonic year was bhe District 
Divine Service, held in Tara United Church and conducted 
by Rev. Bro. C. Manning, District Chaplain. The easy and 
pleasant deliverj^ of Rt. Wor. Bro. the Rev. R. G. Hazlewood 
so inspired the large audience, as he spoke of "The Spirit 
of Masonry", that many of them were later heard to remark 
that they could have listened with pleasure for another 
twenty minutes. 

In conclusion, I would like to thank once more my 
officers, who gave so willingly of their time and talents, and 
Bruce District for giving me the privilege of sening them 
as District Deputy Grand Master. ^ 

GORDON S. MATTHIAS, D.D.G.M. 



CHATHAM DISTRICT 

The privilege of serving as a representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master for Chatham District 
has been gratifying experience. It has been an honour; it is a 
pleasure to submit my report of the year's activities. 

It was indeed a pleasure and of great interest to meet 
with M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, to receive instructions and to 
become acquainted with our neighbouring District Deputies. 

My duties commenced with the appointment of Wor. 
Bro. Austin Forshee as District Secretary. He has handled 
the duties of his office in a most capable manner and at- 
tended all my official visits. The District Chaplain, Bro. 
Rev. Einar Eglisson, of the Dresden United Church, was very 
helpful to me and accompanied me on all my visits. 

My first official and fraternal visit was to my home 
lodge, Sydenham Lodge, No. 255, Dresden. I was honoured 
by the Past Grand Lodge Officers of Chatham District who, 
under the direction of Rt. Wor. Bro. H. D. Paulucci, con- 
ferred a Third Degree on a candidate. Rt. Wor. Bro. Herm.an 
Bauer occupied the chair. 

During my official visits of inspection to the fifteen 
lodges of the District, I found that whatever work was 
exemplified, the officers and members of each lodge did 
it in a dignified Masonic manner. Each Master seemed to 
be very enthusiastic about his work. 

Chatham District was saddened by the passing to the 
Grand Lodge Above, of two of our Past Grand Lodge officers 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Roy E. Carscallen of Sydenham I^dge, No. 
25'5. Dresden, and Rt. Wor. Bro. James Burnett of Pynx 
Lodge, No. 312, Wallaceburg. To their families and all 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 117 

those bereaved throug-hout the year we extend our sympathy. 
We cherish their memories in our hearts. 

One of the higfhlights of my year was at the regxilar 
meeting in November at Sydenham Lodge when I had the 
privilege and honour of occupying the chair, and of initiat- 
ing my oldest son, Douglas, into Masonry. On January ^h 
he received his Second Degree, and in February I had the) 
pleasure of raising him as a Master Mason. These three 
occasions were very gratifying to me. 

Wor. Bro. Glen Martin. Chairman of Masonic Education, 
gave in'teresting talks on this phase of Masonic work. I 
recommended that the officers of the lodges give their 
members something to do to create interest in the work of 
the lodge. I have tried on each of my visits to stress the 
need for more Masonic Education and feel that my efforts 
have been worth while. 

My ^vife and I had the pleasure of attending several 
social evenings and Ladies' Nights, and enjoyed the hospi- 
tality and kindness accorded to us by the various lodges, 
Wor. Bro. Austin Forshee and Mrs. Forshee accompanied 
us on some of these occasions. 

Many invitations were accepted to our neighbouring 
district. I attended a reception in London for the Deputy 
Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. John A. Irvine, also a recep- 
tion in Windsor for the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, 
Russell W. Treleaven. There was a good attendance at both 
these meetings. I visited with Rt. Wor. Bro. Harry Taylor 
of Windsor District on his official visit to Pelee Lodge, 
Pelee Island, on May 5th. It was a beautiful day and we 
had a wonderful trip over on the boat. 

Masonry and our churches are very closely related; 
each of the lodges held their Divine Services, most of which 
I attended. On Sunday, May 2Tth, we held our District 
Divine Service under a combined dispensation with Sydenham 
Lodge, No. 255, in the Dresden United Church. The District 
Chaplain, Rev. Einar Eglisson gave a very inspiring mes- 
sage. His topic was "Mature Men"; there was a good at- 
tendance of Masons present. 

Finally I am happy to state that a fine spirit of friend- 
ship and brotherly love prevails throughout the District. 
I want to thank the Masters, Officers and Members for the 
co-operation and support they gave me. I sincerely hope that 
my stewardship has proved worthy of their confidence.

EASTERN DISTRICT 

To have been District Deputy Grand Master of Eastern 
Dis-trict during the past year has been a wonderful privilege 
and a challenging and rewarding experience. 

My District Secretary, Wor. Bro. C. B. McDermid, re- 
lieved 'me of much of the details of the work by his efficient 
handling of the secretarial duties and by assisting me at 
my official and business meetings. His reports of the records 
of each lodge show' that they are well kept and in good order. 

Wor. Bro. Melville A. McEwen, District Supervisor of 
Masonic Education, reports that there is a growing interest 
throughout the District in this important part of our Masonic 
program. A seminar is planned for this fall, sponsored by 
Corinthian Lodge, No. 669. with their Chairman, Very Wor. 
Bro. G. A. Revell in charge. 

Bro. Rev. Donald C. Munro consented to act as District 
Chaplain, and our District Divine Service on Sunday, May 
27th, in Maxville United Church, was largely attended. 
Several other Divine Services were held by district lodges 
and, when time permitted, I had the pleasure of being present. 

I visited each lodge at least once during the year. I was 
on all occasions received with respect and sincerity. I was 
impressed with the excellent degree work that was done in 
this District, and the capable manner in which the Officers 
conducted themselves. The standard is exceptionally high. 
At the banquet table I endeavoured to give a short address 
on some aspect of Masonry related to its application as it 
concerns our everyday life. 

Mrs. Stewart and I. accompanied by my Secretary and 
Mrs. McDermid, have been happy to accept invitations to 
many social functions in the Dis^trict, and have enjoyed the 
opDortunitv^ of meeting so many of the brethren and their 
ladies. We will retain the most pleasant recollections, for 
years to come, of the friendship's made on these occasions. 

Ou*standine events of the year were the Dedication of 
two new Temples. On October 20th. 1961. Most Wor. Bro. 
H. L. Martyn dedicated Friendly Brothers' Lodge. No. 143. at 
Iroquois. On May 4th, 1962. Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven, 
Grand Master, dedicated Henderson Lodge. No. .S83, at 
Winchester. At each of these events a large number of 
Grand Lodge Officers and Past Masters M'ere present and 
assisted in the ceremonies. Preceding the Dedications, 
banquets were held at which Most Wor. Bro. Treleaven and 
Most Wor. Bro. Martyn were guest speakers. 

I was instructed by the Grand Master to institute East- 
em Lodge, U.D. at Cornwall, on March 27th, 1962. Here I 



•TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 119 

was assisted by Past Grand Lodge Officers and Past Masters 
of the Disitriot. 

My Official visit to Corinthian Lodge, No. 669, coincided 
with their tenth anniversary at which the special speaker was 
the Grand Chaplain, Rt. Wor. Bro. Canon A. J. Anderson. 

Upon being appi'oached by me, Bro. Dr. R. P. Randlett 
of Cornwall, consented to be Chairman of the Blood Donors' 
Clinic. Our efforts have not been crowned with success but 
the groundwork has been laid for future study. 

At the request of Excelsior Lodge, No. 142, Morrisburg, 
I had the pleasure and privilege of presenting a Fifty Year 
Past Master's Jewel to Wor. Bro. E. Matthew Beokstead. 

I cannot fail to mention the important part taken in the 
Masonic life of Eastern District by the Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association under the able guidance of Rt. Wor. 
Bro. Fred Eaton. 

In conclusion, I would thank all those brethren who 
assisted me in making this year such a success, and may the 
Most High prosper our united endeavours. 

R. A. STEWART, D.D.G.M. 



FRONTENAC DISTRICT 

It was a very ^reat honour for me to be elected D.D.G.M. 
of Frontenac Masonic District. I would first like to thank 
the brethren of the District for the whole-hearted support 
and splendid co-operation they gave me. 

I was very fortunate to have the following brethren 
serve as District Officers, W. Bro. Aubrey Norris as District 
Secrptary, W. Bro. Archdeacon N. R. Stout, District Chaplain. 
R. W. Bro. Bruce Causrhey, Supers'isor of Masonic Education, 
Bro. Leonard Ede, Chairman, District Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee. To each of these brethren I extend a very hearty 
thank you. 

I shall always have many happy memories of the even- 
ing's spent on my official visits to each of the eighteen 
lodges in Frontenac District. The cordial and gracious 
recetytion extended by the lodges is evidence of the affection 
the Masons of Frontenac District have for the Grand Master 
as well as Grand Lodge. FreemasoniT is in a ver\' healthy 
state in Frontenac District, each lodge being in good financial 
standing. 

I would like to extend my congratulations to the Wor. 
Masters and their officei-s for the splendid calibre of work 



120 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

carried out in the lodges as well as for a considerable 
amount of Masonic Education which I witnessed. Thanks 
to R.W. Bro. W, K. Bailey for the valuable information I 
received including the excellent bulletins sent out by him on 
Masonic Education. 

I apiyeciated the useful knowledge I gained from M.W. 
Bro. H, L. Martyn, Custodian of the Work. I tried to have 
a message for the candidate, especially at his invitation, 
and I also stressed to each lodge the importance of helping 
all candidates to complete the work in all degrees. 

I was pleased to accompany R.W. Bro. Lyndsy Brown on 
his official visit to Mount Zion Lodge, Kemptville, and 
enjoyed a very fine evening. 

In my home lodge. Westport, No. 441, at its regular 
meeting on January 5th, I presented R.W. Bro. W. C. 
Taylor with a Sixty Year Pin to his Fifty Year Medal, 
after which a Third Degree was exemplified by a number 
of Past D.D.G.M's of Frontenac District. 

I attended, on Sunday March 11th, Union Lodge. No. 9 
of Napanee, it being the one hundred and fifty year anni- 
versary of the lodge. Over two hundred Masons assembled 
to hear R.W. Bro. Rev. Canon, A. J. Anderson conduct the 
Service. At this Service I was pleased to present W. Bro. 
Charles Walters ■wnth a Sixtv Year Pin to his Fift\' Year 
Medal. On other occasions I also presented several Fifty 
Year Medals. 

I attended a number of Divine Services, including the 
Frontenac District Divine Senice on Mav 6th, in St. 
Andrews Presbyterian Church. Kingston. W. Bro. N. R. 
Stout. Di«5trict Chaplain, delivered the sermon, assisted by 
our Grand Chaplain and the Rev. Max Putnam. 

In conclusion. I wish for mv successor, the same loyal 
suTsnort that was extended to me. My sincere thanks to the 
Grand Secretary and his staff for the prompt and efficient 
attenti^'^ to my correspondence and Queries. T hope, from 
a verv humble and thankful heart, that I havp been of some 
small service to them during my term of office, 

ROY SWEETMAN, D.D.G.M. 
GEORGIAN DISTRICT 

I am proud and happy to present my report or the con- 
dition of Masonry in Georgian District as I have been able 
to see it during this year. 

First, may I express my sincere appreciation to the 
brethren of Georgian District for the honour conferred on 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 121 

Equity Lodge, No. 659, Orillia, as well as on myself, in 
choosing me as District Deputy Grand Master and to you, 
Most Worshipful Sir, for confirming their choice. 

I am indebted to W. Bro. Gordon A. Smith, a Past 
Master of Equity Lodge, who acted as District Secretary. 
W. Bro. Smith accompanied me on all of my visits and his 
devotion to detail was of great assistance, not only to me, 
but, I am suTe, to many of the Secretaries in the District, 

W. Bro. D. J. Messenger very effectively fulfilled the 
duties of District Chairman of Masonic Education, as did 
Bro. D. J. Cossey as District Chairman of Blood Donors. 

W. Bro. J. J. Robins of Caledonian Lodge, No. 249, was 
elected Treasurer at the District Meeting last July. His 
excellent guidance and advice during the year have proved 
the wisdom of this choice. At the same time we all must 
acknowledge the loyalty and devotion of R.W. Bro. Thos. 
Robinson of Manitoba Lodge. No. 236, Cookstown, who filled 
this position for many years. 

Each of the twenty lodges was visited officially at least 
once, and I am pleased to report that Masonry in Georgian 
District is making steady progress. It was of particular 
interest to note that many of the Worshipful Masters and 
almost all of the Officers were younger men. I found these 
men to be keenly interested in their responsibilities with a 
genuine desire to maintain their Masonic work at a high 
level. In several of the lodges, important charges were 
given most credibly by junior officers. 

The outstanding Masonic event was the dedication on 
April 9, of the Masonic Temple erected by the brethren of 
Northern Light Lodge, No. 266, Stayner. "On that occasion 
we were honoured by your presence M.W. Sir, as well as 
that of the Grand Senior Warden, the Grand Junior Warden 
and many present and past Grand Lodge Officers. I was 
particularly happy to present to you the twenty Worshipful 
Masters representing the twenty lodges in the District. 

On my Official Visit to Beaver Lodge, No. 234. I 
was privileged to present the Veteran's Jubilee Medal 
to W. Bro. (Jeorge Mitchell, and on my visit to Spry Lodge, 
No. 385, Beeton, I presented a similar medal to Bro. T. E. 
Little This last pleasant dutv was performed on behalf 
of St. John's Lodge, No. 209A, London. On May 29, I was 
again to have this honour when, in my o^vn lodge. Equity 
Lodere, No. 659. I presented the Veteran's Jubilee Medal to 
W. Bro. T. D. Brown, the first Treasurer of Equity Lodge 
and a life member of Karnak Lodge, No. 492. Coldwater. 
I was present, too, in Caledonian Lodge. No. 249, Midland, 



122 GRAND LODT.E OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

when V.W. Bro. Charles Flowers received his Veteran's 
Medal from the hand of R.W. Bro. J. J. Robins. 

In addition to attending the many special meeting's 
held throughout the District, W. Bro. Smith and Mrs. Smi'^, 
my daughter and I were guests when several of the lodges 
entertained their ladies. 

This past year the Georgian District Masonic Officers' 
Association has been re-organized. Several very interesting 
and thought-provoking meetings have been held and inter- 
lodge visits were arranged. On May 31, a Lodge of In- 
struction was held in tihe new Masonic Temple, Stayner, 
vAth R.W. Bro. R. N. Walker presiding. Fifteen of the 
twenty lodges in the District were represented, many of 
them by their W. Masters and Wardens. We are deeply 
indebted to R.W. Bro. Walker and his officers for the time 
and interest taken in preparing a most helpful and inspiring 
meeting. 

On October 15, 1%1, I joined forty-four Masons from 
Orillia Lodge, No. 192, and Equity Lodge, No. 659, in a 
flying visit to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We journeyed from 
Orillia to Malton by bus and boarded a plane for Pitts- 
burgh, where we were met by a cavalcade of cars and taken 
on a tour of the city. We were visitors of Layfayette 
Lodge, No. 652, and witnessed two Third Degrees. Following 
the meeting we were entertained at dinner, boarded our 
plane and returned to Orillia that same day. A return 
visit has been arranged for the week-end of June 16-17, 
when the American visitors will attend lodge on Saturday 
afternoon and join the District Divine Service to be held 
in the Aqua Theatre, Couchiching Beach Park, Orillia, Sunday, 
June 17. R.W. Bro. R. G. Hazlewood, P.G.C, the special 
speaker, will be assisted by local clergymen who are members 
of the Craft. 

In concluding my report may I once again express my 
appreciation of the hospitality I received in every lodge 
and the m'any kindnesses shown to me during my term of 
office, and may I pay tribute to those Past Grand Lodg« 
Officers, Masters. Past Masters and brethren whose loyalty, 
as demonstrated by their presence on so many of my visits, 
has been a constant source of wonder and encouragement. 
I can only hope that, during this year, those visits have 
made some contribution to the sum total of good Masonic 
relations created and fostered by the many distinguished 
men who have been my predecessors in this office. 

T. J. PURVIS, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 12» 

GREY DISTRICT 

I would like to acknowledge, with grratitude and humility, 
the privilege of representing the Grand Master in Grey 
District. To my own lodge, St, Allan's, No, 200, to the 
District and to you Most Worshipful Sir, I offer my sincere 
'Thank You'. The honour that has been bestowed on my 
mother lodge in giving it, its third District Deputy Grand 
Master in 93 years, will long be remembered and efver ap- 
preciated. 

My duties and responsibilities were made easier and 
very enjoyable by the exceptional co-operation and assist- 
ance of the District Se<;retary, Wot. Bro. Harold Corley, 
the District Chaplain, Bro. Rev, F. Allen Rckering, M.A., 
the District Chairman of Masonic Education, Wor. Bto. 
Gordon Coutts, and the District Chairman of the Blood 
Donors' Committee, Wor. Bro, Wesley Barker. My thanks 
and appreciation are extended to these faithful brethren. 

I have visited all lodges in Grey District at least once, 
some more often and am happy to report that in every lodge, 
I witnessed degree work which was done in a most capable 
and efficient manner. In many cases I noticed yoiinger 
members taking part which seemed to create gTeater interest 
and enthusiasm in these lodges. 

Many lodges are showing true Masonic spirit in their 
communities with their support of local Hospital Campaigns, 
Retarded Childrens' Schools, etc. 

Most lodges have held Divine Services; however I am 
sorry to report that some have not and I feel this is a most 
regrettable oversight. Due to my Sunday commitments, I 
found that, in many cases, it was impossible for me to 
attend these Services, 

Many of the lodges have held Ladies' Nights, and Mrs, 
Davies and I were privileged to attend many of these pleas- 
ant gathenngs. We were made most welcome on all occasions 
and thoroughly enjoyed meeting the brethren and their 
wives. 

The highlight of the year was the combined District 
Reception to the Grand Master and the Dedication of Hiram 
Lodge, No, 490, Markdale's new Temple on Mondaj', April 
2. M. Wor. Bro, Russell W. Treleaven, Grand Master, gave 
an interesting and inspiring address at the reception, and 
later, accompanied by a very- large group of Grand Lodge 
officers, dedicated the beautiful new Temple. I would be 
most remiss if I did not commend the brethren of Hiram 



124 GRAND LODGE OF C.\NADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Lodge on their new Temple. It will be a memorial to those 
who gave so unsparingly of their time, money and talent. 

Prince Arthur Lodge, No. 334, Arthur, and Harris 
Lodge, No, 216. Orangeville, have plans well under way 
for new temples and I hope their efforts will culminate in 
such success as Hiram's have. 



On November 28, representative's of all lodges in the 
District met in St. Alban's Temple, Mount Forest, and, under 
the guidance of Rt. Wor. Bro. Bruce Fife, proceeded to 
organize a District Past Masters', Masters', and Wardens' 
Association. It was interesting to note that 100% of the 
lodges balloted for and supported the Association. The 
benefits have become self-apparent since that time. 

The Visitations Committee, under the leadership of Wor. 
Bro. Don Dobie, organized inter-lodge visits and from all 
reports this was a resounding success. On April 30, Lome 
Lodge, No. 377, Shelbume, in conjunction with the new 
Association, sponsored a Lodge of Instruction. The Grand 
Junior Warden, Rt. Wor. Bro. William H. Prentice, together 
with Rt. Wor. Bro. Dr. E. Flath. P.D.D.G.M., officiated. 
The evening proved to be most beneficial to all and, on my 
remaining official visits, I was happy to note the use of 
suggestions which arose at the Lodge of Instruction. 

Grey District has been honoured to have received many 
visits from neighbouring D.D.G.M's and members of Grand 
Lodge during the year, and, whenever possible, I have at- 
tempted to reciprocate. 

On Sunday, May 27, the annual District Divine Service 
was held in St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, Mount Forest. 
Well over 100 Masons, i-epresenting every lodge in the 
District, were in attendance. I am most grateful to Rev. 
Bro. F. Allen Pickering for his excellent sermon entitled, 
"Look Well to Your Foundations". He summed up so 
capably many of the thoughts I had attempted to leave with 
the brethren during the year. 

In conclusion, I wish to speak for my successor the 
same loyal support and courtesies which were extended to 
me and, through me, to the Grand Master. It is my pro- 
found hope that my humble contribution duiring the past 
year may produce some good, and that Masonry might 
benefit and prosper. 

ROBERT E. DAVIES, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 126 

HAMILTON DISTRICT "A" 

To have had the honour of serving- as District Deputy 
Grand Master of Hamilton Masonic District "A" has been 
one of the most heart-warming and rewarding experiences of 
my life, and I thank all the brethren for having made it so. 

It was my pleasure to appoint, as my District Secretary, 
Wor. Bro. A. E. Cheesman. who has twice served the office 
of Worshipful Master of my lodge, Corinthian, No. 513, and 
who, throughout the year, has been a most capable and 
efficient officer and of great assistance to me. 

Bro. The Reverend Earl Clark was chosen as District 
Chaplain and, with his advice, effort and support, made a 
real contribution to Masonry. He was the principal speaker 
at one of the District Educational nights speaking on "The 
Role of Masonry and the Church." 

It was fitting that Rt. Wor. Bro. W, L. SommerWlle. an 
outstanding member of my mother lodge, St. John's, No. 40, 
continued in office as Supervisor of Masonic Education and 
who, by reason of his zeal and experience, provided out- 
standing leadership in this field. 

Three excellent District Educational meetings were held. 
The first was under the auspices of St. John's Lodge, No. 
40, when Rt. Wor. Bro. Dr. J. J. Talman of London, was the 
speaker. The second was at Oakville in Claude M. Kent 
Lodge, No. 681, with our District Chaplain as the principal 
speaker; and the third was at Tuscan Lodge, No. 551, (follow- 
ing a dinner of the Masters' and Wardens' Association), 
when a large gathering listened to an inspiring address by 
our Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor, Bro. J. A. Irvine. 

It is interesting to note that just prior to one of these 
meetings the heating plant in the building failed and the 
meeting was held in 42° temperature. It speaks well for 
the enthusiasm and fortitude of the brethren that not one 
of those attending left before the close of the meeting, and 
that both old and young pronounced the evening an unquali- 
fied success. 

Wor, ,Bro. Fred Scott again acted as Chairman of the 
Blood Donors' Committee in his usual efficient manner. 

On all of my official visits to the 19 lodges of the 
District, I was warmly received and royally welcomed. On 
each occasion I observed the lodge at work conferring degrees. 
TTie uniformity and excellence of the work speak well of the 
skill of the officers of the lodges, and for the leadership of 
the District and Grand Lodge Officers of former years. I 
was particularly delighted to observe, in a large number 



12S GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

of lodges, many of the junior officers and the othe^r brethren 
of the lodge, assisting in the principal work of the ritual. 

The books and records of each lodge were examined 
by the District Secretary who reported in every instance 
that they were well and neatly kept. The lodges in this 
District are foi-tunate in having such efficient and devoted 
men to fill the office of Secretary, some of whom have been 
in office a gi'eat many years. 

The attendance at each lodge visitation was, in practical- 
ly all instances, excellent. Indeed, in many cases the fac- 
ilities were taxed to the limit. This I interpret as an 
indication of an increased interest in and enthusiasm for 
Masonry in this Disti'ict, also showing the wonderful sup- 
port accorded me by the Masons of the area. 

I shall always be especially grateful to the members 
of my lodge, the Grand Lodge Officers, and the various 
Masonic Associations for their support and encouragement. 
We are particularly fortunate in Hamilton to have two 
very active Masonic Associations of long standing. The 
Past Masters' Association and the Masters' and Wardens' 
Association are untiring in their support of all things 
Masonic. Another Association that made its presence felt 
this year was the 1962 Masters' Association of Hamilton 
Masonic Districts "A" and "B". Following quickly upon 
their installation, these brethren formed their Association 
and made the complete support of the District Deputies 
their chief effort. Their faithful attendance at my official 
visits I greatly appreciate. 

It was my great pleasure to be present at a number 
of functions attended by our Grand Master, namely 
the receptions tendered him at Grand River Lodge, No, 151, 
on the occasion of their 100th Anniversary, by his own lodge, 
Acacia, No. 61, and the reception for our Deputy Grand 
Master, Rt. Wnr. Bro. J. A. Irvine, at London. I was, also 
ni-esent when the Grand Master presented Veteran Jubilee 
Medals to our Grand Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon 
in Electric Lodge, No. 495, and to Rt. Wor. Bro, W. A. 
Laidlaw in Ionic Lodge, No. 549. 

The highlight of the year was, of course, to have partici- 
pated in the work the night our Gi'and Master initiated his 
son into his mother lodge. Acacia, No. 61. This was a most 
thrilling occasion, which I am sure wall never be forgotten by 
the large number of brethren present. 

I attended six Masonic Church Services during the year, 
at some of which I had the privilege of reading a lesson. 
All of these Services were^ well attended. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 127 

I was delighted on two occasions to accompany lodges of 
this District on Fraternal visits to lodges in New York State, 
and each time met with that most friendly reception for 
which our American brethren are noted. 

While Mrs, Jackson and I were not able to attend as 
many of the Ladies' Nights as we would have liked, we did 
get to quite a few, which we thoroughly enjoyed. On each of 
these occasions we were most warmly received. Mrs. 
Jackson also appreciated the lovely flowers sent her by the 
lodges on the nights of my official visits and on other 
occasions. 

I cannot close this report without a word of thanks to 
our Grand Secretary, R. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon and his 
assistant Rt. Wor. Bro. Geo. McQueen. We, in Hamilton, are 
perhaps, prone to lean more hea\'ily on the Grand Lodge 
office for help than are others at a distance, but to all of 
us, helpful advice and friendly counsel are always available 
from these brethren. 

Again I would like to express my thanks to all those 
who have given so freely of their time and effort to make 
my term of office a most enjoyable and profitable experience 
foT me. 

J. H. JACKSON, D.D.G.M. 



HAMILTON DISTRICT "B" 

It has been a rewarding and educational experience to 
have served as D.D.G.M. of Hamilton Masonic District "B" 
dunng the Masonic year just passed. It will always be one 
of my greatest memories and I take this opportunity to 
exipress my thanks to the Officers and Members of The 
Lodge of Strict Obsen'ance, No. 27, for proposing me as 
representative of the Grand Master. 

I was fortunate in having a loyal body of District 
Officers accompany me on my official visits. Wor. Bro. R. 
F, Billington was my District Secretary and he discharged 
his duties in a most efficient manner. He reports that the 
books and records of the Secretaries are in excellent con- 
dition. Rev. Bro. Dr. N. D. MacDonald was District 
Chaplain. V. Wor. Bro. A. E. Cook was Chairman of the 
Blood Donors' Committee and Wor. Bro. B. W. Sharpe was 
Supervisor of Masonic Education. 

I visited the twenty lodges in the Disti-ict and I was 
received with great respect by all. At all visits a degree 
was conferred and I was delighted with the efficient manner 



128 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

which was displayed; all candidates must have been greatly 
impressed. 

I attended three Receptions to the Grand Master, at 
Grand River Lodge, No. 151, Kitchener, at Acacia Lodge, 
No. 61, Hamilton, and at Kil\\nnning Lodge, No. 565, Toronto. 
The large attendance was indicative of the high esteem held 
by the Masons in Ontario for our Grand Master. 

I took part at the regular meeting of Acacia Lodge, 
No. 61, on Friday, March 9th, 1962, when Most Worshipful 
Bro. R. W. Treleaven had the pleasure of initiating his son 
into Masonry. The large attendance at that meeting was a 
tribute to him. 

Masonic Education is being given in many of the lodges 
at each meeting, and shows great promise for the future. 
Two Lodges of Instniction were held during the year, at 
Hillcrest Lodge. No. 594, and Buchanan Lodge, No. 550; 
both were well attended. 

Divine Services were held by most of the lodges in the 
District and one combined District "B" Service was held in 
St. John's Presbyterian Church on Sunday, May 18th, when 
Bro. Rev. Lome McKay took the Service, owing to the illness 
of the District Chaplain. It was my pTi\'ilege to read the 
lesson at several of these Services. 

Most of the lodges held their Annual At Homes and Mrs. 
Truscott and I had the pleasure of attending fifteen of them, 
which we enjoyed very much. We also had the pleasure of 
the company, at some of them, of R. Wot. Bro. J. H. Jackson, 
D.D.G.M. of Hamilton Masonic District "A". 

I was impressed greatly with the number of visitors 
attending the different lodges in District "B", and I deeply 
appreciated the support of the newly formed 1962 Masters' 
Association of both "A" and "B" Districts who accompanied 
me in such large numbers on my official visits. 

In closing I would like to thank the Grand Secretary, 
R. Wor. Bro. Ewart Dixon, the Masters' and Wardens' Associ- 
ation, The Past Masters' Association, and all the lodges for 
their support and co-operation. 

ROBT. G. TRUSCOTT, D.D.G.M. 



LONDON DISTRICT 

My year as D.D.G.M. of London District was a very 
■enjoyable and pleasant one. It was made such by the utmost 
in cooperation from each of the twenty-four lodges in the 
District and the help of my district officers, namely, Wor. 
Bro. Rolfe N. Weekes, District Secretary, Bro. The Rev. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 129 

Andrew E. Eustace, District Chaplain. Wor. Bro. Wesley 
Botham, Supervisor of Masonic Education, and Wor. Bro. 
W. J. M. Fuller, Chairman of the Masonic Blood Donors' 
Committee. 

I officially visited each of the London District Lodges 
throughout the year and, in almost every instance, the work 
was performed in a dignified and precise manner, according 
to the ritual. Wherever pyossible a short talk on Masonic 
Symbolism was given. The Master of each lodge, or their 
representative, attended each official visit, a practice which 
originated some years ago in the London District, and which 
is much appreciated by the D.D.G.M. 

A Lodge of Instruction in the First Degree was held on 
Monday evening, January' 29, under the supervision of Wor, 
Bro. Botham. Two hundred and forty-five brethren from 
every London District Lodge registered and the Senior 
Wardens of the District were the officers for the evening. 
A Lodge of Instruction, in my opinion, tends to make the 
ritual uniform in a district and helps the junior officers 
strive for perfection. We appreciated the assistance given to 
us by M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Custodian of the Work, in 
clarifying portions of the work that are not covered by the 
ritual. 

Most of the London Lodges held Divine Services of their 
own, but. as has been the custom, a District Divine Service 
was held in Empress United Church, London, on Sunday 
evening, April 29th, with the District Chaplain in charge. 
Masons and their families showed to the outside world that 
religion is important to the Masonic Order by practically 
filling the church, which seats 650, to capacity. 

Mrs. Fuller and I are deeply indebted to the lodges for 
their many invitations to the Ladies' Nights and special 
functions. Also, twenty-five year member nights, anni- 
versary nights, a Sunday morning breakfast, reunion of 
lodges from across the Province bearing the same name, and 
other special occasions helped to keep Masonry alive and 
active in the London District this year. 

It was my special delight to have the honour of in- 
stitutincr the new Oakrido:e Lodge, U.D. on Thursday. June 7, 
1962. I was assisted by most of the Past D.D.G.M's of 
London District and three present members of Grand Lodge 
This new lodge has but tvventv-three charter members but, 
-^vith the enthusiasm shown by these brethren, Oakridge 
Lodge has a bright and rosy future. The brethren of Oak- 
ridge will meet on the first Thursday of each month at 
the Byron Masonic Temple in London. 

As D.D.G.M. of the London District it is also my duty 
to report that the downtown Masonic Temple in London has 



3 30 GRAND LOIK5E OF CAJJJADA ANNUAL COMMUlSnCATION 

been sold to the London Life Insurance Company. This fifty 
year old building has sensed the Masons of London well but 
a new temple couild provide much more in the way of space 
for additional lodges, better banquet and lounge facilities, 

etc. 

One cannot spend this very important year in Masonry 
without forming some opinions and observations. These 
opinions and observations I Avill pass on in the form of 
recommendations to the Grand Master and Grand Lodge: 

1. I recommend that three new lodges be formed in the 
London District as soon as possible. 

2. I recommend that Grand Lodge set up a committee to 
look into the redistribution of the lodges in the several 
Masonic Districts with particular reference to the south, 
western part of the Province. 

The last redistribution took place in this area in 1923 
and, needless to say, many things have changed since that 
time. Space does not permit a detailed report of the reasons 
for this recommendation but I would be pleased to submit a 
report on the subject at your request. 

In conclusion, it has been an honour and pleasure to 
have been the representative of the Grand Master in the 
London District in the Masonic year, 1961-62. 

ROSS C. FULLER, D.D.G.M. 



MUSKOKA-PARRY SOUND DISTRICT 

The honour of serving as the Representative of the 
Grand Master in Muskoka-Parry Sound District has been a 
great pleasure and a most interesting and rewarding ex- 
perience. The esteem and regard for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge were shown by the friendly reception and 
support given by the brethren of the eight lodges in this 
District. 

My first duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. E. J. Liddle as 
District Secretary. He accompanied me on all official visits. 
and performed the duties of Secretary in a most efficient 
and capable manner. Wor. Bro. C. Topps kindly accepted 
the office of District Chaplain. He also attended all official 
visits and spoke briefly at each meeting. I appointed Wor. 
Bro. H. Mather as District Chairman of the Blood Donors' 
Committee. He accompanied me on most of the visits and 
asked for the co-operation of all Masons. Bro. R. Lyle, as 
Chairman of District Masonic Education Committee, attend- 
ed most of the official visits, and at some meetings detnon- 



TOROMTO, OIJTARIO, 1962 1»1 

strated what could be done in a two minute talk on Free- 
masonry. 

At all official visits I mentioned the matter of fire 
protection, and urged that all possible precautions be taken 
to insure against loss of lodge buildings by fire. One lodge, 
this year, has installed fire extinguishers and is contemplat- 
ing building a fire e&cai>e. 

On the occasion of the official visit to Unity Lodge, 
Hunts\ille. the Rt. W. Bro. Prentice was present. He also 
visited Muskoka Lodge. Bracebridge. At both lodges Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Prentice gave a very interesting and inspiring 
Address. Visits like these by Grand Lodge Officers do much 
toward stimulating interest in Masonic work, and I sincerely 
hope this practice will be continued dxiring the coming year. 

Last November, I visited Strong Lodge, Sundridge, and 
had the honour and pleasure of presenting a Fifty- Year 
Medal to Rt. Wor. Bro. A. M. Church. 

The District Church Service was held in Powassan, 
Sunday, June 3rd. The Masters from seven lodges in this 
District were present for this occasion. Each Master 
was accompanied by Officers and Members of their respec- 
tive lodges. The attendance was 118. The splendid sermon 
preached by V. Wor. Bro. Schapter will long be remembered 
by the brethren present. 

Degree teams, under the' capable direction of Bro. E. V. 
Elliott and Wor. Bro. N. Goodwin, visited the various lodges. 
These visits were a great success and of great value, not 
only for information given regarding correct procedure in 
Ritual work, but in bringing brethren from other lodges 
together to meet in friendship and brotherly love. 

The Secretary's reports from all lodges show that books 
and records are well kept, and insurance on buildings and 
furnishings are adequate. All lodges are in a sound financial 
position. Degrees were conferred on official visits at six 
lodges, and were exemplified at one lodge. The degree 
w^ork was well performed in all lodges. In the majority 
of the lodges visited the officers were young men, who are 
greatly interested in Masonry, and who performed their 
various duties in a most earnest manner, which I am sure 
made a great impression on the candidates. 

In conclusion, I thank all the officers and members of 
the various lodges of this District for gi\'ing me the honour 
of sei-ving as D.D.G.M. The very friendly receptions given 
at each visit and the whole hearted co-operation given by all 
the lodges will be a very pleasant memory, one which I vnll 
always cherish.

132 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

NIAGARA DISTRICT "A" 

I am grateful for having had the opportunity of repre- 
senting the Most Worshipful the Grand Master in Niagara 
"A" District for the year just closed and I have endeavoured 
to discharge my stewardship in a manner that would justify 
the trust placed in me and uphold the high standards of 
conduct set by my predecessors in office. 

The respect and esteem with which Grand Lodge and 
its representatives are held has been sihown by the warmth 
of the welcome extended to me throughout the entire district. 

My appointments on assuming office' were as follows: — 

Wor. Bro, George P. Wills of Adanac Lodge, No. 614, as 
District Secretary. 

Bro. Rev. Thomas H. Smith of Adanac Lodge, No. 614, 
as District Chaplain. 

Wor. Bro. David M. Muir of Coronation Lodge, No. 502, 
Smithville, as District Supervisor of Masonic Edu- 
cation. 

Wor. Bro. Walter Smith of Adanac Lodge. No. 614, as 
District Blood Donor Chairman. 

The skill and ability demonstrated by these brethren in 
carrying out the duties of their respective offices, deserve 
the highest commendation and I owe to them a debt of 
gratitude which I find difficult to repay. 

Each of the lodges in the district was visited once 
officially and once unofficially, and, in my opinion, any 
apparent deviation in the presentation of the work was the 
result of nervouisness on the part of the participants rather 
than improper tuition. 

The drain on our membership through the back door by 
suspension for non payment of dues has been brought to 
the attention of all lodges, and the most successful method 
of back dues collection to date seetns to be the combination 
of an alert and conscientious Lodge Secretary, coupled with 
a follow-up committee who use the personal door bell ring- 
ing touch and do not rely on the mail or the telephone. 

With St. George's Lodge, No. 16, as host lodge a meeting 
of the Masonic Research Council of Canada was convened in 
Niagara "A" for the presentation of two papers relative to 
early Masonry in the Niagara Peninsula. They were the 
work of V.W. Bro. J. L. Runnalls and W. Bro. J. McComb. 
Both papers were well received and the meeting drew a 
record number of interested brethren. 

Masonic choirs add an extra something to the work in 
the various degrees which is most enjoyable. Niagara "A" 



TORONTO, Ol^ARIO, 1962 183 

is fortunate in having two such choirs, and they not only 
lend dignity and harmony to the degree work in their 
respective lodges, but have received high commendation 
throughiout the district for their ability to adequately 
occupy the choir lofts of any or all of the District Churches 
on the occasion of the Divine Services. Their leaders are to 
be commended. Individual Lodge Di\nne Services were held 
by the various lodges, while the District Di\ine Service was 
under the sponsorship of Maple Leaf Lodge, No. 103, St. 
Catharines. 

I am pleased to report that Masonry continues on the 
same high plane that has characterized Niagara District "A" 
in the past. The Worshipful Masters and their officers are 
carrjnng out their duties conscientiously and with decorum 
and all are ably supervised and assisted by Past Grand 
Lodge Officers, who suffer little or no infringement of our 
customs or deviation from established usage. 

A. V. HAMMOND, D.D.G.M. 
NIAGARA DISTRICT "B" 

During my term of office as D.D.G.M. I made an official 
visit to each of the fourteen lodges in Niagara District "B". 
I also visited some lodges on other occasions. At Dominion 
Lodge in Ridgeway I presented a Fifty Year Medal to Wor. 
Bro. A. Bennett. 

I attended six Church Parades in addition to the District 
Church Service which was very well attended by represent- 
atives of all lodges in the District and which was held in 
the Fenwick United Church, May 27th, 

There is a slight increase in membership in Niagara 
District "B". Attendance at lodge meetings is, in a great 
many cases, causing concern. Larger lodges and particularly 
ledges in larger centres appear to be suffering mostly. 

I have been concerned with a situation where three 
lodges in a concurrent jurisdiction all hold their regular 
meeting on the same night of the week in the month and I 
feel something should be done to remedy this situation. 

Degree work is uniform and impressive throughout the 
District. 

S. J. GILL, D.D.G.M. 

NIPISSING EAST DISTRICT 

I am happy to report that Masonry in Nippissing East 
DiS'trict is, in general, in a flourishing condition. The lodges 
in the larger centres are extremely busv and are receiving 
many new members, who appear to be of high calibre. Even 



134 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL. COMMUNICATION 

in the smaller communities, several of the lodges report an 
increasing interest in the Craft and are making satisfactory- 
progress. In one or two of the smaller towTis, where business 
activity is at a low level and the population is static, the 
lodges are not receiving many petitions for membership 
and. consequently, do not have the opportunity of performing 
degree work very regularly; but even in these cases, I found 
the officers to be extremely sincere in the performance of 
their duties and the spirit of the members to be excellent. 
The quality of the work which they performed at the 
time of my official visits was entirely satisfactory. 

An illness, which sent me to hospital on several occasions 
between August and December, made it necessary for me 
to delay all my official visits until the latter part of my 
term and also had the unfortunate effect of delaying the 
Chairmen of the District Committees in organizing their 
work. The good work of my predecessors has, however, 
established in the' various lodges a continuing interest in 
the subjects with which the District Committees are con- 
cerned, and I feel that Masonic Education, in particular, has 
been effectively promoted. 

A District Meeting, for the discussion of matters of 
general interest to the lodges, wall be held in Temagami 
later this month. 

I visited all lodges in the District at least once. In most 
cases the^ w-ork was handled very expertly indeed, being 
accurate verbally and smartly and confidently presented. 
In every case, I felt that the performance of the work was 
quite satisfactory. The courtesy and friendliness of the 
Masters and officers and brethren of the various lodges 
indicated clearly their regard for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge, and was most gratifying to me. 

A trend which I observ'ed, and which I felt could be of 
real benefit to Masonry, is the tendency of lodges to send 
considerable delegations to visit their sister lodges, partic- 
ularly on the occasion of tJie official visit of the District 
Deputy Grand Master. Quite a few members of Elk Lake 
Lodge visited Sturgeon Falls Lodge, at a distance of 150 
miles, w^hen I was there; and the visit was returned by an 
equallv larsre group. I understand this is becoming an 
annual event. Masonry can only benefit by such demon- 
strations of solidarity and friendship. 

On every one of my visits, I w^as accompanied by several 
members of my own lodge, and I cannot sufficiently thank 
them for their interest and support. In particular, I must 
mention the work of my District Secretary, Very Worsihipful 
Brother James Graham, whose cheerful help was absolutely 
indisTiensible to me. 

Mav I conclude bv expressing my thanks to the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master for the opportunity of serving 
him. 

M. G. GOULD, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 186 

NIPISSING WEST DISTRICT 

Another Masonic year is drawing rapidly to a close and, 
in looking back over my term of office as District Deputy 
Grand Master for Nipissing West District, I do so witn 
mixed emotions. I feel that much has been accomplished 
but that a great deal more might have been done for the 
benefit of Masonry as a whole and for the individual lodges, 
if only time had permitted. I am much impressed with the 
fact that this is mainly the result of the number of lodges 
in this vast area, also the extent of time necessary to travel 
the long distances required to visit the majority of the lodges. 
I feel that serious consideration should be given to forming 
this large District into two districts, in the immediate future. 
This, I believe, would result in much closer contact between 
the lodges and the District Deputy Grand Master, 

The seventeen lodges in the District were officially 
visited and on each visit, degrees were conferred, with the 
exception of Keystone Lodge, whose officers chose to over- 
look my request for a degree to be exemplified. The work 
in the majority of tbe lodges was found to be of a high 
standard and in the event that any assistance was necessary, 
it was cheerfully given and gratefully received. The officers 
are, in the main, young, vigorous men, very active; all are 
a «redit to the Craft, which speaks well for Masonry in this 
District, My visits were greeted with well filled lodge 
rooms and it was noted that an increasing number of the 
brethren were taking part in the work. It is also noted 
with pleasure that there app>ears to be an increase in th€ 
trend of exchange of degree team visitations. Two of the' 
lodges held their dinners before the lodge meeting and it 
was noticed that this resulted in a much larger attendance 
than in the other cases and more lodges might, in my opinion, 
give more consideration to this procedure in future. 

All lodges in the District were found to be in soimd, 
financial condition, the lodge premises clean and well kept, 
and sufficient insurance carried. Masonic Education was 
strongly stressed and all prepared articles on Masonic Edu- 
cation were promptly submitted to all lodges through Wor. 
Bto, a, a. Watson, District Supervisor of Masonic Edu- 
cation. It is pleasing to note that, with the exception of 
four lodges, considerable time was devoted to this important 
subject. 

The Blood Donors' Committee, under the guidance of 
Wor. Bro. W. Noble, resulted in fifteen lodges participating 
with 280 members donatiner. Unfortunately, no report was 
received from either Elliot Lake or Keystone Lodge. 

Of the seventeen in this District, only three held a 
Ladies' Night and it is my strong recommendation that more 



136 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

lodges give serious thought to this very important function. 
I also feel that some of the Lodge Secretaries could give 
more attention to the prompt disposal of correspondence. 
The lodge books and records, on a whole, were neat and well 
kept. Church Services were held by eight lodges. 

It is with profound sorrow that we record the passing 
to the Grand Lodge Above of Wor. Bro. Leslie E. Aide, 
Algonquin Lodge, Copper Cliff: Wor. Bro. George L. Donald- 
son, Gore Bay Lodge, Gore Bay: Wor. Bro. Walter Varpio, 
Sudbury Lodge, Sudbury: Wor, Bro. Samuel Cole, Dyment 
Lodge, Thessalon: Wor. Bro. E. G. Edwards and Very Wor. 
Bro. John R. Watt, Algoma Lodge, Sault Ste. Marie: Wor. 
Bro. D. Emerson, National Lodge, Capreol: Wor. Bro. Lome 
Fowler and Wor. Bro. Henry Claridge, Nickel Lodge, Sud- 
bury; and Wor. Bro. Thomas Dorrance and Wor. Bro. Albert 
Lomas, Keystone Lodge, Sault Ste. Marie. We cherish their 
memory in our hearts. 

H. A, DEATH, D.D.G.M. 

NORTH HURON DISTRICT 

Just to have had the privilege of coming in contact 
with the warmth of fraternal friendship has been a reward- 
ing experience. An official visit was made to the twelve 
lodges in the District, and I am happy to report that the 
condition of Masonry is excellent. The ritualistic work is of 
high order, all officers and Past Masters showing a real 
pride in their efforts. The Lodge Secretaries were most 
co-operative. There is a general increase in membership 
throughout the District, and the attendance at lodge meetings 
is good. There were many visitors present on the evenings 
of my official visits which afforded the opportunity of 
addressing the brethren on the excellence of our institution 
and the quaifications of its members. 

I was ably assisted throughout the year by Wor, Bro. 
Stuart McPherson, whom I appointed as District Secretary. 
He has been most attentive to his duties, and his friendly 
suggestions were helpful, not only to myself, but to the 
lodge secretaries. 

It was a very pleasant privilege for Mrs. MacKinnon and 
myself to be honoured guests at several Ladies' Nights 
throughout the District. All were enjoyable and reflected 
a very friendly and social spirit. 

Our Blood Donors* Service, under the chairmansihip of 
Rt. Wor. Bro. Harvey Linklater, deserv^e much credit for 
the work they are doing. 

Most Lodges held a Div-ine Service during the year. A 
District Di^^ne Service was held under the auspices of Bruce 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 187 

Lodg'e, No. 341, in Tiverton Presbyterian Church with Bro. 
the Rev. Dr. S. M. Scott, the District Chaplain, delivering 
a most impressive message. 

It has been my pleasure to visit with neig-hbouring 
District Deputy Grand Masters, and to have them join me 
in visits in lodges in this District. "Wherever we went we 
could not fail to be impressed by the spirit of Freemasonry. 

The outstanding event of the year was the visit of Most 
Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven to North Huron District, which 
was held in Tiverton on May 9. He delivered a most in- 
spiring address at the banquet table to a large gathering 
of the brethren who had assembled to do him honour. We 
were also honoured by the presence of Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. 
Dixon. Grand Secretary. This occasion helped to make my 
year memorable. 

To the brethren of my Mother Lodge who accompanied 
me on so manv of my visits, helping to make my term of 
office more enjoyable, I am deeply indebted. 

To my successor I pledge my loyal support, and I ask 
for him the same generous co-operation of the District. 

I wish to thank the Grand Lodare Officers for their 
assistance and guidance which enabled me in my efforts 
to make my duties pleasant and memorable. 

To serve as District Deputy Grand Master of North 
Huron District has been a great pleasure for me. and I 
'hope I have in some small \srav left something in the District 
that will be a benefit to the Craft. 

JOHN L. MacKINNON, D.D.G.M. 
ONTARIO DISTRICT 

It is my honour to submit for your consideration the 
report on the condition of Masonry in Ontario District for 
the past year. 

First, permit me to express my very sincere appreciation 
and gratitude to my brethren of Composite Lodge. No. 30, 
for selecting me as their nominee for this high and important 
office; also to the brethren of the District who supported 
their choice by electing me to serve them this year. I 
sincerely hone that, in the discharge of the duties of this 
office, my efforts ^^•^I1 have met with your approval and will 
have merited the confidence you displayed in electing me to 
be your representative. To you, Most Worshipful Sir. I 
would like to express my great appreciation for confii-ming 
my election. To Rt. Wor. Bro. E. G. Dixon. Grand Secretary, 



138 GRAND LOIKJE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and Rt. Wor. Bro. G. J. McQueen, Assistant to the Grand 
Secretarj-, my heartfelt thanks for their excellent counsel 
and direction; they have been most co-operative and their 
assisitance has been invaluable, 

Wor. Bro. R. W. Agg, P.M. of Composite Lodge, No- 30, 
and Wor. Master of The David T. Campbell Lodge, U.D. 
pleased me greatly by accepting appointment as District 
Secretary. His enthusiasm for our great Craft and his un- 
failing attention to the many and varied requirements 
of a District Secretary provided me with a staunch supporter, 
friend and companion. He sei'ved our District well. Bro. The 
Rev. S. J. Armstrong of Composite Lodge, No. 30, graciously 
accepted the appointment as District Chaplain. He proved 
a wise and popular choice. Though young in Masonry he 
enriched our efforts by apt and skillful correlation of the 
thoughts and ideals of Masonry to those we are taught by 
the Volume of the Sacred Law; another example of able 
and unselfish service. 

A District Divine Service was held in All Saints 
Anglican Church, Whitby, on May 27th, with Rev. S. J. 
Armstrong, Rector, and Bro. The Rev. Canon F. Arthur 
Smith. B.A., D.D., as guest preacher. His very timely and 
inspiring message was much enjoyed by all brethren present- 
Follo\\ang the Service, to which all brethren weTe encour- 
aged to bring their families, a simple buffet-style coffee 
hour was provided which enabled us to relax and visit 
leisurely with the brethren and their families. 

The custom of Cedar Lodge, No. 270. and Orono Lodge, 
No. 325, of having the current Grand Senior Warden and 
Grand Junior Warden visit their respective lodges and con- 
duct the work was continued, Rt. Wor. Bro. G. C. Bennett, 
Gr. Sr. Warden, visiting Cedar Lodge on October 24th and 
Rt. Wor. Bro. W. M. Prentice, Gr. Jr. Warden, visiting Orono 
Lodge on November 0th. We were also pleased to have Rt. 
Wor. Bro. G. J. McQueen, Assistant to the Grand Secretary, 
conduct a ceremony of dedication of new regalia at Lebanon 
Lodge, No. 139, on September 12th. 

We were greatly saddened as, during the course of the 
year, a number of our brethren passed to the Grand Lodge 
Above, in particular, V. Wor. Bro, Gordon Houlden of 
Lebanon Lodge, Os-hawa, and V. Wor. Bro. Wm. Pringle of 
Composite Lodge. Whitby. They were faithful, zealous and 
sincere Masons and served the Craft devotedly. V.W. Bro. 
Pringle achieved a record, we believe to be outstanding, by 
discharging the duties of Treasurer of Composite Lodge for a 
period of 49 consecutive yeai"^. We cherish their memory. 

On a happier note. I was particularly pleased to be able 
to present a 60- Year Pin to Bro. Wm. Barnes of Composite 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 1«» 

Lodge on September 25th, and at a later date to present to 
Wor. Bro. F, J. Gale, the oldest living P.M. of Composite 
Lodge, a SO-Year Medal. 

Among the most memorable occasions of my year in 
office was the great privilege accorded me in being able to 
act in instituting a new lodge in the town of Whitby, The 
David T. Campbell Lodge. The recorded history of Masonry 
in this community dates from a petition for dispensation to 
the Provincial Grand Lodge, dated Februan,- 2nd, 1808. 
Now, 154 years later, we have laid the foundations of another 
lodge. The name of The David T. Campbell Lodge was 
taken from the name of a former resident of Whitby. David 
T. Campbell left this community as a young man, moving to 
the city of Chicago, where he proved successful in his busi- 
ness ventures. When he died in 1955 he left a considerable 
estate, 30 per cent of which he bequeathed to Composite 
Lodge, No. 30. as a trust fund to be used to provide further 
education for boys who would otherwise be unable to con- 
tinue their schooling. As the capital is invested, the interest 
only is used. It is readily seen that this must constitute a 
perpetual fund. Such was this man's faith in our Craft that, 
in his final years, he chose Composite Lodge to faithfully 
discharge his wishes. Since the receipt of this bequest, 20 
deserving boys have already been enabled to continue their 
educations. The good will and respect which Masonry will 
derive from the proper implementation of this eenerous 
bequest cannot be estimated. This quite briefly, is the story 
behind the name, The David T. Campbell Lodge. 

All lodges within our District were officially visited at 
least once and detailed examination of their records was 
made on that occasion. I am happy to ad\nse that all lodges 
report active committees on Masonic Education and Blood 
Donor Service; also those portions of Grand Lodge Proceedings 
are regularly read for the instruction of the brethren. 

On the' condition of Masonrv, I am pleased to report 
that in the majority of cases the standard of work is of 
high quality; degrees are exemplified ■\\nth skill, enthusiasm 
and dignity. It is evident that the work conducted in our 
lodges is very dependent on the sincerity, skill and example 
set by the Masters and their officers. It should probably be 
emphasized that most lodges regard the progression from 
junior offices on through to the chair of King Solomon as 
more or less automatic. Thus the consideration of a brother 
for any office in the lodge should receive as much careful 
atte"ntion. if not more, than the selection and election of the 
Worshipful Master, himself. 

Our Disrict shows, as at the occasion of the official 
visits, a decrease of some 20 members. However, this is, I 
feel, a healthy condition, rather than the reverse, as it is 
brought about by a number of our lodges putting their 



140 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

houses in order by catching: up something of a backlog of 
necessary suspensions and demits. Arrears of dues would 
not seem to constitute any problem. In only one case, and 
this a temporary one, was it necessary to draw attention 
to this matter. Insurance of lodge premises and contents 
would appear to be adequate in all cases. Wiring and lodge 
premises also are in good to exemplary condition. 

Mrs. Rycroft and I, usually accompanied by Wor. Bro. 
Agg and Mrs. Agg, were fortunate in being able to accept 
many of the invitations to the Ladies' Nights of the District. 
This year will stand out in our lives because of the hospitality 
we received and the friends we made on these enjoyable 
occasions. We regret that there were some events that we 
were unable to attend. 

In all my addresses I endeavoured to bring attention to 
the practical application of Masonic ideals and teachings in 
our daily lives. I tried, as well, to illustrate the fact that, 
however great the traditions of this great Craft, however 
much we valued the examples and integrity of our predeces- 
sors. Masonry today is ours. It is how we live it to-day that 
is important. 

Finally, let me say that to have served this District as 
D.D.G.M. has proven to be one of the most rewarding 
privileges of my life. I am at a loss to express fully my 
sincere appreciation of the wonderful support extended to me 
by the Masters, officers and brethren. Their encouragement 
to me personally and their sincere affection for Freemasonry 
have lightened my responsibilities and have made it a genuine 
pleasure to serve them. I should like to express mv deep 
appreciation to the P.D.D.G.M.'s, P.M's, and Wor. Masters 
for their many helpful suggestions throughout the year. My 
special thanks go to Rt. Wor. Bro. D. E. Gibson, Rt. Wor, 
Bro. W. G. Bunker and Rt. Wor. Bro. James Jackson who 
in numerous ways have contributed to make this a successful 
year. 

CHARLES B. RYCROFT, D.D.G.M.

It has been a privilege and an honour to serve the 
Ottawa District during the past year. 

Shortly after my election, the following- appointments 
were made: Wor. Bro. C. C. Dale. District Secretary: Bro.

Bro. V. Poland; Wor. Bro. Wm. J. Roe. Chairman, District 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 141 

Blood Donors' Committee, assisted by Wor. Bro. W, M. 
Stanley. 

Early in September, 1961, I called a meeting of all the 
Masters and District Officers to explain rulings received 
at Grand Lodge and to communicate the valuable inform- 
ation imparted by the Custodian of the Work, M.W. Bro. 
H. L. Martyn, at his meeting with certain District Deputies, 
held in Brockville in August. A fi-ank discussion relative 
to various problems took place and plans were laid for 
the months ahead. 

I visited all the lodges in the District officially and 
several of them unofficially on special occasions. The work 
in general was very good. On no occasion, when I visited 
a lodge, did I see degree work which would be considered 
of poor quality. The attendance on District Deputy nights 
was good, although, in some cases, the visitors outnumbered 
the members of the lodge being visited. As usual, many of 
the "old faithfuls" who have served Masonry so well in the 
past, were present to lend their continued support. 

The books and records of each lodge wei*e inspected 
and found to be in order. Where necessary, advice was 
offered regarding outstanding: dues. Most Lodge Secretaries 
are to be commended for the manner in which they perform 
their duties. 

Several lodges held Divine Ser\'ices which were fairly 
well attended, although there is room for improvement in the 
attendance. Three District Divine Services have been held 
to date. On Saturday, February' 24th, one of the stormiest 
days of the winter, 400 brethren and lOO of their ladies were 
warmly welcomed at Beth Shalom Synagogue, Ottawa, where 
Rabbi S. L. Eckstein delivered a fine sermon. This was the 
first time' that Masons of the Ottawa District had 
attended a Divine Service in a Synagosrue and it was a spirit- 
ual blessins: to all. Coincidentallv. the Synagogue Sen-'ce 
was held during Brotherhood Week. In April, we attended 
St. Timothy's Presbyterian Church, Ottawa, where Bro. 
(Rev.) W. H. L-eGro\v, District Chaplain, preached an inspir- 
ing sermon based on the building of the Temple. In May, 
we were privileged to heir another excellent sermon at St. 
John's Anelican Church, Eganville, by our Bro. (Rev.) E. L. 
Lake, District Chaplain. 

At present, plans are well advanced for an open-air 
service "under the T>ines" at the Y.M.C.A. camp. Ck)lden 
Lake, to be held on Sundav afternoon. June 24+h, which will 
be conducted bv Bro. (Rev.) Lak^. with Bro. HilHard Argue 
of Oobden Lodee in charge of the choir and sacred music. 
This will be a "family service", followed by a picnic supper. 



142 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNTJAL COMMUNICATION 

Wor. Bro. Higginson and his committee have devoted 
much tinie and effort to providing excellent leadership in the 
field of Masonic Education. From observation, it was felt 
that there was need for a school of instruction for Deacons 
and that was held in Westboro Temple in December, 1961. 
Lodges of Instruction were held in Cobden, covering the 
First Degree, and in Westboro Temple at which the Second 
and Third Degrees were covered. Brethren were given an 
opportunity to have questions answered at all these meetings. 
The thanks of the District is due to Cobden and Westboro 
Temple authorities for the use of their halls. Wor. Bro. 
Taylor of Ionic Lodge was especially helpful to Wor, Bro. 
Higginson in planning and arranging for the meetings. 

Wor. Bro. Roe did all that anyone could do to arouse 
interest and increase support for our Blood Donor program; 
nevertheless results at the two clinics which were held, one 
at the Temple in Ottawa and the other at the Red Cross 
Clinic, were disappointing. The great majority of our donors 
are giving blood at clinics he^ld in connection with their work. 
In fact, most of those who did contribute at our clinics would 
likely have given through industrial or office groups. I 
share the belief of many others, that the results do not 
justify the effort and that we should not be participating" 
as a Masonic group. 

It is doubtful if the Past Masters'. Masters' and Ward- 
ens' Association ever had a more successful year than the 
one just completed. Wor. Bro. Cedric Dale gave fine leader- 
ship to an active, hard-working committee and the results 
were excellent. The Newsletter published by the Associ- 
ation and edited by Wor. Bro. Robt. Rowsome, has been 
interesting and instructive. 

On Christmas Day, 1961, the Most Hig'h summoned the 
WoTshinful Master of St. John's Lodge, No. 63. Carleton 
Place. Wor. Bro. G. C. Crampton, to the Grand Lodge Above. 
The call came unexpectedly and without warning to a brother 
who had contributed much to Masonry. The large number of 
brethren and friends who attended both the Masonic Ser\'ice 
and the Church Service attested to the high esteem in which 
our beloved brother was held. 

During the year, it was mv pleasure to attend many out- 
standing functions, a few of which are as follows: the un- 
veiling of the memorial to the late Veiy Wor. Bro. G. C. 
Longley (St. James Lodge No. 74), which took place at 
Maitland, Ontario; Dedications of Temples at both Iroquois 
and Winchester; the reception held bv Eddy Lodge, No. 41, 
Hull, P.O., in honour of the Grand" Master of the Grand 
Lodge of Quebec. M. Wor. Bro. B. V. Atkinson. Unfortun- 
ately. I was unable to accept all the invitations which I 
received. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 148 

I am deeply grateful to the Grand Secretary, Rt. Wor. 
Bro. E. G. Dixon, and his staff, and to the Custodian of the 
Work, M.W. Bro. Harry L. Martyn, for their cooperation 
and advice which I sought on many occasions and cheerfully 
received. 

My wife and I attended several of the Ladies' Nights 
and enjoyed the hospitality and good fellowship which pre- 
vailed at all these events. 

It is my belief that the Ottawa District is too large. 
I feel that, \vith fewer lodges, a District Deputy could de- 
vote more time to individual lodges which might appear 
to need more attention than others; also, that more good 
men would be willing to stand for election as District 
Deputies. In my opinion, splitting this District would 
strengthen Masonry rather than weaken it, as some contend. 

Is it possible that the greatest hope for the continued 
or even greater success of Masonry may lie in a long-range, 
carefully-planned educational program, designed for and 
directed at two general classes of Masons, namely, (1) 
newlv-initiated Masons and (2) those who have been in- 
itiated within the past 5 years? It would be useful, of 
course, to any Mason who is interested in learning more 
about our philosophy. 

Finally, thanks to all members of District Committees. 
to the Masters and Secretaries of the lodges, to all loyal 
and devoted Masons who have supported and encouraged 
me, and to everyone who has contributed in any way to 
make this a happy and successful year. 

Mav the Great Architect of the Universe continue to 
pour His rich blessing on our Order. 

JOHN O'DONOVAN, D.D.G.M. 



PETERBOROUGH DISTRICT 

To have been District Deputy Grand Master of Peter- 
borough District for the past year, has been a great ex- 
perience. My term of office has been made pleasant by the 
co-operation and understanding of the brethren. The wonder- 
ful reception accorded me on my official visits to the twelve 
lodges in the district was very gratifying and. on each \'isit, 
the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge were duly honored. 

My first duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. Alexander 
Anderson as District Secretary, Bro. Rev. W. D. Elmslie as 



U4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

District Chaplain, and Wor. Bro. Evan Mcllraith as Super- 
visor of MaS'Onic Education. 

I visited each of the twelve lodges at least once, and I 
was received with warm hospitality. In each lodge, a degree 
was exemplified. The lodges are fortunate in having a group 
of capable officers who are upholding the traditions of 
Masonry. Two of the lodges are finding it difficult to get 
candidates. My Secretary accompanied me on all my official 
visits and reported that the books and records of all the 
lodges were inspected and found to be well kept and in good 
order. 

Our Divine Service was held in Grace United Church, 
on Sunday, April 15 at 7:00 p.m., with our District Chaplain, 
Bro. Rev. W. D. Elmslie officiating, at which time he gave 
a very inspiring address. Bro. A. Walden read the Scriptures. 

Under the guidance of Wor. Bro. E. Mcllraith, Masonic 
Education is going forward. Each lodge has an Education 
Committee and full use is made of the prepared articles 
sent out by Grand Lodge. On April 6th. a team, made up 
of m.embers of the Committee of each lodge, gave a demon- 
stration of the First Degree, which was well received by a 
large attendance of members. 

I made a fraternal visit to Golden Rule Lodge, Campbell- 
ford, when the Wor. Masters of the District Lodges formed 
a team and conferred the First Degree. The work was well 
done and shows that our young officers are taking a very 
active interest in the Craft. 

On May 9th, we had a very enjoyable evening at Clementi 
Lodge, Lakefield, when a reception was held for R. Wor. 
Bro. W. M. Prentice, Grand Junior Warden. All the District 
Junior Wardens were special guests. R. Wor. Bro.. Prentice 
gave a very interesting address. 

My wife and I were honoured guests at the annual 
Ladies' Night held by the Peterborough Lodges and we en- 
joyed the hospitality extended at that time to us. 

I am sorry we have been unable to form a Blood Donors* 
Committee. Our brethren are very much interested in the 
Red Cross and have given large donations. Some brethren 
have given 20-30 and 40 donations. Six have given 50 and 
Bro. John Smith has given 70, which is a wonderful record. 

I regret to report the passing of R. Wor. Bro. D. D. 
Brown, a Past District Deputy Grand Master of Peterborough 
District. 

As my term of office draws to a close, I wish to extend 
my sincere thanks for the honour conferred on me and trust 
I have proved worthy. 

WILLIAM ANDERSON, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 145 

PRINCE EDWARD DISTRICT 

Conscious of the honour bestowed upon me when elected 
the Grand Master's representative, and of the responsibility 
to the Craft this office entails, I submit this report on the 
condition of Masonry in Prince Edward District. 

This position has given me an opportunity to study and 
reflect upon Freemasoniy and the activities of Masons, that 
I had never hoped to have. I can say, honestly, there seemed 
to be a profound respect for the basic principles and the 
established landmarks of the Order. Each of the seventeen 
lodges made a sincere and most successful attempt to make 
the occasion of my official visit one long to be remembered 
by me. In all but two instances, the banquet was held 
before lodge convened, ensuring a reasonable closing time. 

W. Bro. Everett S. Fairman was our faithful and 
efficient District Secretary. He was able to be with me 
on all but one of my visits. In the matter of a District 
Chaplain, I broke with local tradition by appointing a Past 
Master of a lodge outside our District. This was so that 
we might have the benefit and experience of a member of 
the clergy. W. Bro. Archdeacon J. B. Creeggan, Rector of 
Christ Church (Anglican), Belleville, was my choice. He 
gave me faithful support at all but four of my visits, and 
took charge of our District Divine Service in his Church, at 
3.00 p.m. of May 13th. R.W. Bro. Canon A. J. Anderson, 
Grand Chaplain, v,-as the speaker, and some 300 Masons 
attended. 

We were fortunate in having as our District Supervisor 
of Masonic Education, W. Bro. William G. Slack. He was 
assisted in a very active programme, by eight members 
drawn from as many lodges. They were R.W. Bros. E. C. 
Wood, W. J. Anderson, H. D. Haggarty, R. M. Gunsolus, 
and W. Bros. B. E. Portt, J. Ritchie, C. Reid, A, Hewitt, 
This Committee was very faithful in answering the calls to 
present topics of Masonic interest when invited by the various 
lodges of the District. Long lectures were discouraged in 
favour of brief discussions of a variety of items suggested 
by the Syllabus of Instruction the use of which we were 
endeavouring to foster. The use of the Syllabus was also 
demonstrated when each of the smaller lodges was host to 
at least one of the laTorer lodres. I was particularly oleased 
with the way in which all of the lodges accepted direction 
on this subject, and co-operated, in full measure, in what I 
believe, proved to be a very successful attempt to help our 
members appreciate the broad field open to investigation. 
Also, I believe that the programme was favourably received 
at a time when the number of petitions for membership, 
generalh', is decreasing. 



146 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

R.W. Bro. R. C. Woodley, as District Chairman of the 
Blood Donors' Committee, also gave faithful service. 

On October 28th, Temple Lodge, No. 666, Belleville, 
celebrated its 10th Anniversary. R.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, 
D.G.M. was the Guest Speaker at the banquet. The hall was 
filled to capacity by many Grand Lodge Officers, non-resident 
members of the lodge and representatives from every lodge 
in the District. It was a pleasure, not only to do honour 
to Temple Lodge, but also to be able to use the occasion to 
receive our highly respected representative of our Grand 
Master in this District. 

I visited outside my District on two occasions. One of 
these was to attend a Reception to our Grand Master in 
Victoria District. 

I was called upon to attend seven Installations, to present 
Veteran Jubilee Medals, new regalia, and to deal with matters 
pertainine to Masonic Education, all of which required 
special visitations throughout the District. 

Mrs. Bates and I attended and greatly appreciated each 
of the ten Ladies' Nights to which we were invited. These 
included a very successful one held by the Past Masters', 
Masters', and Wardens' Association where about 200 persons 
were served in the Banquet Hall of United Lodge, No. 29, 
Brighton. 

Possibly what has given most satisfaction has been the 
outstanding support of my Mother Lodge, The Belleville, No. 
123, by attending my official visits in large numbers, and 
by putting into action some of my suggestions for increasing 
interest in the Craft within the District. They exercised 
their influence in the field of Masonic Education, and by 
sponsoring a potluck supper which the wives attended and 
greatlv appreciated. Then, too, in keeping with my suggestion 
that the wives should be sharing in our activities whenever 
possible, my wife was a guest during the banquet hour when 
I returned to my Mother Lodge to complete my official 
rounds. This was so well planned and executed, that I shall 
never foreet the occasion. Rarely, have we been unable to 
accommodate in the Temple all who ^\•^shed to attend. It was 
a thrilling experience for us and thoroughly demonstrated 
Masonic loyalty. 

In striking contrast to the pleasure of being D. D.G.M. 
was sad news received about March 22nd. that R.W. Bro. 
H. D. Haggarty and Mrs. Haggarty had been seriotisly in- 
jured in an automobile accident, near Jessup, Georgia, while 
returning from a trip to Florida Thev were confined to 
hospital in Savannah, Ga.. and. as I write this report, June 
1st. they have been returned to the District to continue 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1662 147 

convalescence, from which, we pray, they may be restoi-ed 
to good health. 

In summary, I must say that our Masonic District is 
one of contrasts— in lodge quarters, there are the old and 
the very new; some lodges receive many petitions for mem- 
bership, others few; some officers are encouraged by good 
attendance of members while others are not so much so; 
some are aggressive and highly organized, while others are 
much less so; then while most lodges are fortunate enough 
to have Secretaries who are meticulous in their duties and 
prompt in regard to reports, a few lodges are not nearly 
so exacting; while some lodges cannot find area enough on 
their summonses, others seem to have difficulty filling the 
space available. But in spite of weaknesses that may exist 
in organization, I am sure that as Masons, no better have 
been made than those to be found in Prince Edward District. 

H. G. BATES, D.D.G.M. 



SARNIA DISTRICT 

Masonry being a progressive, moral science, therefore 
as another Masonic year draws swiftly to a close, we should 
pause to review the current year, and evaluate our steward- 
ship in this great fraternity and record any progress that 
has been made because of a daily advancement in Masonic 
knowledge. Therefore it is a pleasure to report the activities 
of Masonry in Sarnia District. 

I appointed W. Bro. Gerrard S. Cowan, as District 
Secretary; he carried out his duties very efficiently and 
capably, and was a great source of help to me throughout 
the year, accompanying me on all but two of my official 
inspections. 

The first notable evening of the year was held in 
Thedford, in September, when the three lodges of Forest, 
Arkona and Thedford, played host to the Worshipful Masters 
and Senior Wardens of the District at a dinner, giving me 
the privilege of getting acquainted with them and outlining 
the year's program. 

On each of my official inspections of the 21 lodges a 
degree was conferred or exemplified, with the exception 
of two. At one of these, the degree was cancelled, due to 
i-he extreme heat of mid-May. This was my home lodge, 
Watford, where I had witnessed degree work on several 
previous occasions. 

The Wot. Masters and officers of all the lodges were 
most co-operative and showed an earnest desire to uphold 



148 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the traditions of Masonry. But in spite of this, the degree 
work varied from fair to excellent. 

Rt. Wor. Bro. D. H. Townsend very ably acted as 
District Supervisor of Masonic Education by giving talks 
and supplying speakers for several lodges throughout the 
District, as well as an after-dinner speaker for several 
Ladies' Nights. 

Most of the lodges have held Divine Services to uphold 
the close connection of the Craft and the Church. Most of 
these I have attended, and I noted that in most cases they 
were well attended by the brethren. 

Rev. Bro. William H. Daunt enthusiastically acted as 
my District Chaplain, being formerly a member of Concord, 
No. 71, Cork, Ireland. He came to Canada less than two 
years ago and has since affiliated with Havelock Lodge, 2.38, 
Watford. Bro. Daunt also accompanied me on a good many 
of my visits, always ready to add a short but inspiring mes- 
sage "to the brethren. On May 27th the District Divine 
Service was held in the Watford United Church with the 
Minister, Rev. Ross Cumming, conducting the Service and 
the District Chaplain delivering a very inspiring sermon, 
taking for his subject, "The four cardinal virtues and the 
three theological virtues." There was a good number of 
Masons and their ladies in attendance. 

During the year I visited with the D.D.G.M's of several 
surrounding Districts and was well received; the visits were 
returned. I also attended several official receptions for our 
Grand Master in other Districts and a dedication and recep- 
tion at Woodbridge. Then on May 25th the highlight of the 
year was the reception for the Grand Master, who was 
accompanied by our Grand Secretary, at Wyoming in Samia 
District to celebrate the Centennial of Burns' Lodge, No. 153. 
Most Wor. Bro. Treleaven gave a very inspiring address to 
almost 300 Masons from South Western Ontario. 

On April 1,3th, my Mother Lodge held a district banquet 
and reception in my honour in Ti'inity Anglican Church, 
which was well attended. Rt. Wor. Bro. John A. Irvine, 
our very capable Deputy Grand Master, was the guest 
ST>eaker. It has been a great privilege and pleasure to have 
had both the Grand Master and Deputy Grand Master in 
Sarnia District during my year. 

Rt. Wor. Bro. Stewart Rowe, my immediate predecessor, 
Chairman of the Blood Donor Committee, reports the usual 
favourable response to his appeal for donors throughout the 
District to support the blood banks, by those who are physi- 
cally fit. 

The Pnst Masters' and Wardens' Association of Sarnia 
District held three very successful meetings during the year. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 149 

with Rt. Wor. Bro. Harry Russell as President: The fall 
meeting wqs held in Petrolia with the Wor. Masters of the 
District conferring a degree. The second was held in Jan- 
uary at Brigden, when several capable speakers of the 
District spoke on subjects of Masonic Education, The third 
was held in my Mother Lodge, Havelock, No. 238, when 
we were favoured by a very informative address by Rt. Wor. 
George J. McQueen on Masonic Benevolence. 

On November 2nd, 1961, at my official visit to Arkona 
Lodge, No. 307, it was my privilege to present Wor. Bro. 
Lorenzo Evans, on behalf of Grand Lodge, with his Veteran 
Jubilee Medal. On November 8th, when three members of 
Petrolia Lodge, No. 194, were presented with Veteran Jubilee 
Medals, I was unable to attend due to my official visit 
in Samia. But on February 19th, I presented Veteran Jubilee 
Medals to Bros. Ewart Evans, John Jervis and Rt. Wor. Bro. 
W. A. Campbell in Beaver Lodge. No. 83. Strathroy. I might 
add that Rt. Wor. Bro. W. A. Campbell is still very active 
both in Beaver Lodge and Beaver Chapter. R.A.M. Again on 
my official visit to Beaver Lodge, No. 83, on April 16th, I 
presented Bro. William Burnison with his Veteran Jubilee 
Medal, making four in one lodge within two months. 

We have lost through death five Past Grand Lodge 
Officers since July, 1961, two Past District Deputy Grand 
Masters and three Past Grand Stewards, as well as many 
brethren. My sincere sympathy is extended to all their 
families and loved ones. I know that their loss will be 
severelv felt throughout the District. We cherish their 
memories in our hearts. 

Most of the lodges have held "Ladies' Nights", upholding 
the social side of our Order. Mrs. Searson and I had the 
pleasure of attendint? these and associating with the brethren 
and their wives, which was very much appreciated. 

Whi'e Masonry in Samia District has not grown in 
membe^phip during the past year, it is making progress in 
the high standards of our Order and I feel there is room for 
the institution of two or three more lodges in the city of 
Sarnia, as the population has almost tripled in the last 
twenty-five years. More lodges would give' more of the 
brethren an opportunity to take part in lodge work and 
management. 

In conclusion, may I thank, most sincerely, the Grand 
Master and the brethren of Sarnia District for granting me 
this privilege of serving Masonry in this District. I am most 
grateful to the Present and Past Grand Lodge Officers, the 
Past Master, Wor. Masters, officers and members of the 
twentv-one lodges for their inspiration and support. I trust 
that I have, in some small way, contributed to the betterment 
of Masonry in general and Samia District in particular. 

GEORGE C. SEARSON. D.D.G.M.

SOUTH HURON DISTRICT 

It is with a deep sense of gratitude to the Great Archi- 
tect of the Universe for a marvellous year as I come to the 
end of my term. It has been my desire to emphasize the 
setting up of benevolent funds in the lodges and to stimulate 
the interest in Masonic Education. I have endeavoured to 
encourage the spiritual and moral aspects of Masonry, and 
I have been greatly encouraged by the response of the 
bretliren. 

Attendance at official visits was excellent with an 
average in 17 lodges of 80, I would especially like to voice 
my appreciation to the Secretaries of the District for their 
careful attention to all the details in keeping the official 
records of the lodges and in transmitting the required inform- 
ation. 

The work of the Worshipful Masters and officers was of 
a very high order throughout and I was greatly impressed 
with the number of younger candidates being received into 
our lodges. I feel that many of them will play an important 
part in Masonry in the years to come. I had the pleasure of 
having my son initiated, passed and raised during the year. 

It was a source of much pleasure to have visiting 
District Deputies at many of my official visits and also of 
visiting in all the neighboring districts. South Huron was 
honored by the visit of the Most Worshipful Bro. R. W. 
Treleaven at the Centennial Celebration of Tecumseh Lodge, 
No. 144, Stratford, as guest speaker in the lodge room and 
at the banquet following. We were also honored by having 
the Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, as guest 
speaker at the Centennial Celebration of Irving Lodge, No. 
154, Lucan. R.W, Bro. Irvine also visited Granton Lodge, 
No. 483, where he presented V.W. Bro. Bruce Grant with his 
Grand Steward's regalia. I had the honor of presenting 
Grand Lodge regalia to V.W, Bro. Ross Scott of Britannia 
Lodge, No. 170, Seaforth. 

Last September the Worshipful Masters and Senior 
Wardens gathered at Elma Lodge, No. 456, Monkton, for a 
get-acquainted meeting and the fellowship which began there 
followed me throughout the year. The loyalty of the 
Masters and Wardens has been an inspiration. 

Our District was saddened by the passing: to the Grand 
Lodge Above of R.W. Bro. Geo. Jefferson. P.D.D GM. and 
past member of the Board of General Purposes. Bro. 
Jefferson was a noted educationist as well as an ardent 
churchman. He will be sorely missed, not only by his own 
Lodge, but throughout the District. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 151 

I cannot commend too highly the work of the Past 
Masters' Association which this year celebrated its silver 
anniversary at our annual Past Masters'Ladies' Night which 
was held in Mitchell where 380 Masons and ladies gathered 
at a banquet to celebrate the occasion. The guest speaker 
was R.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine who gave a most inspiring aadress. 
R.W. Bro. Ralphs Munro gave a brief history of the Associ- 
ation. During the year they also organized a Masonic 
Education meeting at Britannia Lodge, No. 170, Seaforth, 
under the direction of R.W. Bro. Molson Cain of Toronto. 

One of the highlights of the year was the presentation 
of 50 Year Medals to three of the brethren of Milverton 
Lodge, No. 478. R.W. Bro. Flath presented R.W, Bro. P. 
L. Tye, a former colleague in medicine. I had the honor of 
presenting W. Bro. Geo. Coxon with his Medal. V.W. Bro, 
Herb Sparling presented Bro. Wm. Reis with his Medal. Past 
D.D.G.M's of the District conferred a Second Degree on this 
occasion and the Grand Junior Warden, R.W. Bro. Wm. 
Prentice, gave a brief address on the Second Degree. About 
80 Masons were present. 

The lodges of the District are in excellent condition and 
many of their buildings have been renovated during the 
past couple of years. 

Our District Divine Service was held in Monkton United 
Church with Rev. E. E. New, Minister of the Church, as 
guest preacher, substituting for the District Chaplain, Rev. 
Bro. Frank Tomkinson, who was in hospital. About 100 
brethren were present. Most of the lodges have held Divine 
Services which have been well attended. Many of the lodges 
held successful Ladies' Nights and we had the privilege of 
attending many of these and all were a credit to the Craft. 

In conclusion, I would like to extend a special word of 
thanks to W. Bro. Clare Reith, Chairman of Masonic Edu- 
cation, and his committee for the excellent work they have 
been doing. One of their projects I would like to recommend. 
They have asked each lodge to send an article they have 
used in Masonic Education and these will be available to 
other lodges. In time it is hoped to build quite a library of 
these articles. I would also like to recommend that the voting 
for Grand Lodge officers be held in the district rooms. At 
our recent district meeting it was moved and seconded and 
carried unanimously that this recommendation be forwarded 
to Grand Lodge as we feel very strongly about it. 

One final word of appreciation to my faithful secretary 
for his efficient and willing service, he having accompanied 
me on all my official \'isits. Wor. Bro. Charles Merry-field 
has made my task much lighter by taking care of all 
secretarial duties. 

R. EARL TAPP, D.D.G.M. 



152 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

ST. LAWRENCE DISTRICT 

It has indeed been a great pleasure and a wonderful 
experience for me to serve as the i^presentative of the 
Grand Master in St. Lawrence District. I wish to express 
my appreciation for the honour bestowed upon me. 

I have been ably assisted by the brethren whom I ap- 
pointed to fill the different offices. Wor. Bro. Frank 
Willows as District Secretary, Bro. Rev. C. K. Mathewson 
(a holder of the William Mercer Wilson Medal) as District 
Chaplain. Wor. Bro. Gerald Gilmer as District Chairman of 
Masonic Education and Bro. Keith Pelton as District Chair- 
man of the Blood Donors' Committee. 

I have found Masonry in St. Lawrence District to be 
very progressive in all of the nineteen lodges. The degree 
work has been rendered in a very capable manner. The 
officers of each lodge appear to be of a very high calibre. 
It seems to be the general practice to inform the new mem- 
bers that there is a lot more to be learned from Masonry 
than what is explained to them when they are given their 
degrees. To the foregoing I most heartily agree, because 
Masonry should be to each and every one of us "A Way of 
Life". I have been very pleased with the interest taken in 
Masonic Education throughout the entire District. It was 
my pleasure on some of my visits to have a short talk on 
Masonic Education very ably given by some of the brethren. 

It was my pleasure, accompanied by Mrs. Brown and 
the District Secretary and Mrs. Willows, to attend several 
"Ladies' Nights" throughout the District. On every occasion 
we were royally received and entertained. 

St. Lawrence District has a verv fine Masters', Past 
Masters' and Wardens' Association. Ownng to poor health, 
our tireless Secretary, Rt. Wor. Bro. F. J. Latham, has had 
to resign, but has a capable successor in Rt. Wor. Bro. 
George Jackson. 

On Sunday, October 29th, 1961, I unveiled a monument 
at the invitation of St. James Lodge. No. 74, in St. James 
Cemetery. Maitland. to the memory of Very Wor. Bro. Geo. 
Cannins- Lonsrlev. the first Wor. Master of St. James Lodge. 
After the unveiling a Masonic Floral Emblem wa=; placed 
on the en-ave by the senior brother of the lodge. Wor. Bro. 
Henrv' Throop. ' The brethren then nroceeded to St. -Tames 
Church where' they -were addressed by Bro. Rev. Canon 
Edmund Grant, Chaplain of the lodge. 

The hie-hlight of my vear as D.D.G.M. was the visit on 
January 24th. to mv own lodge. Lvn, No. 41fi. of Most Wor. 
Bro. Wm. L. Wright, who spent part of his boyhood in Lyn, 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 153 

when his father, our late Bto. Rev. J, dePencier Wright, was 
Rector of the Parish of Elizabethtown. Most Wor. Bro. 
Wright gave a wonderful address which will long be remem- 
bered by those who had the privilege of hearing him. I would 
again like to thank him for the honour bestowed on Lyn 
Lodge by his presence. 

We were very pleased to have the Grand Chaplain. Rt. 
Wor. Bro. Canon A. J. Anderson, (who lived as a boy in 
Brockville, five miles from Lyn, and who married a former 
Lyn girl, the daughter of Wor, Bro. Bishop Lyons) ac- 
company Archbishop Wright to Lyn Lodge. 

There have been several Church Services held in the 
District. On May 27th. the District Church Sel^ice was 
held in Wall St. United Church, Brockville, and was attended 
by many brethren from the District, 

Finally, Most Worshipful Sir, I wish to thank you for the 
privilege of representing you in St. Lawrence District, also, 
Most Wor. Bro. Martyn and Rt. Wor. Bro. Dixon for their 
guidance and help. 

LYNDSY BROWN, D.D.G.M, 

ST. THOMAS DISTRICT 

It has been a great privilege to represent the Grand 
Master in the St, Thomas District. I am most grateful to 
the Past Masters and Wardens for electing me to this im- 
portant office. 

Each reception was extended in a friendly and gracious 
manner, indicating the affection and respect the brethren 
of the St. Thomas District have for the Grand Master and 
Grand Lodge. 

My first duty was to appoint W. Bro. Keith McLean, 
District Secretary, Rev. Bro. William Eddy, District Chaplain, 
W. Bro. Hugh Silcox, Director of Masonic Education, and 
W. Bro. Sam Grantham, Chairman of Masonic Blood Donors. 
I wnsh to thank all of these brethren for their assistance 
and loyal support. 

I visited all lodges in the District and found the work 
to be done in a satisfactory manner. There are Wor. Masters 
who spare no energy to reach perfection and are working 
just as hard to induce beitter attendance at lodge m.eetings. 

The District Secretary reported the books and record <5 
of all lodges in the District to be in good condition and 
their financial affairs to be in good hands. 

The District was saddened bv the passing to the Grand 
Lodge Above of R.W. Bro. W. A. Gray, St. Thomas, and 



1&4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

R.W. Bro. J. H. Burke, Port Stanley. Both were active and 
highly esteemed members of the Craft. I was greatly hon- 
oured to have been presented my regalia by R.W. Bro. 
Burke, the senior P.D.D.G.M. Many of the lodges also 
reported deaths of their members. We honour these brethren 
and cherish their memory in our hearts. 

The Past Masters' and Wardens' Association is very 
active in the St. Thomas District. The Chairman is W. Bro. 
Lawrence Ellsworth and the Secretary is R.W. Bro. Frank 
Henry. Two well-attended meetings were held this year, 
one in Aylmer and the other in Port Stanley, which is an 
annual fish dinner. 

Several of the lodges held Ladies' Nights and Mrs. 
Orchard and I were able to attend all of them. We would 
like to express our sincere appreciation to the brethren of 
these lodges for the many thoughtful courtesies extended to 
us. 

On February 15th, the First Degree was conferred in St. 
David's Lodge, No. 302, by the Past Grand Lodge Officers; 
175 Masons attended in support of these brethren. Then 
again on April 26th at an extremely well attended meeting 
in Talbot Lodge, No. 546, the Worshipful Masters of the 
District worked the First Degree. This type of work 
creates a great deal of interest throughout the District. 

The Grand Master was not in the District this year. How- 
ever, we were favoured by a visit from R.W. Bro. Prentice, 
the G.J.W., R.W. Bro. Barrett. Grand Registrar, and several 
members of the Board of General Purposes. 

I was privileged to be present at the reception for Most 
Worshipful Bro. Treleaven in Windsor, and a reception for 
R.W. Bro. Irvine in London. Both were enjoyable evenings 
and will long be remembered. 

On three of my visits I had the honour of presenting 
the Veteran Jubilee Medal. During their long association 
with Masonry the recipie^nts have seen many changes and 
can quite well relate how Masonry has withstood these 
changes. 

The District Divine Ser-\ace was held on May 27th in 
Grace United Church, St. Thomas. Wor. Bro. Rev. Lloyd 
Coates delivered a most inspiring sermon. Following the 
Serv'ice the brethren and their wives gathered for a social 
hour at which time we were honoured with a verv interesting 
address by our Deputy Grand Master, R.W. ' Bro. J. A. 
Irvine. 

In conclusion, I ^vish to thank all the brethren for their 
assistance and loyal support. 

DOUGLAS ORCHARD, D.D.GJVI. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 165 

TEMISKAMING DISTRICT 

To all Masonic members of this District for giving me 
the honour to represent the Grand Master, I am most grate- 
ful. 

I wish to thank my officers, Wor. Bro. Harry Atkins, 
District Secretary, Rev. Bro. J. A. Lougheed, District Chap- 
lain, Wor. Bro. J. Matear, Chairman of Masonic Education, 
and Bro. James Harling, Chairman of Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee, for the excellent assistance received in my year. I 
could not have chosen better men and I am most appreciative 
of their efforts. 

My special thanks to M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Custodian 
of "The Work" for the wonderful assistance given in my 
term of office. I thoroughly endorse his program of in- 
struction to D.D.G.M's. He went the extra mile on my 
behalf. 

I want to make special mention of the Masonic Edu- 
cation program being carried out by Rt. Wor. Bro. W. K. 
Bailey. This is of great value to the lodges in our District 
and education is part of Masonry in practically every lodge. 
On all my official visits I gave a talk on Masonic Education 
of at least twelve minutes. 

Particular attention was given to the Blood Donors' Com- 
mittee this term. Chairman Bro. J. Harling did an excellent 
job in recording the highest ever in our District so far. 

On a directive from Grand Lodge, all our temples were 
checked by the Fire Department as well as by an Electrical 
Inspector. In every case, our temples are in fine shape with 
the exception of a few minor alterations which will be done in 
the near future. Some of these temples are considerably 
improved since my last \asit and I am most pleased to see 
our property bein^ so well preserved and improved. 

I am pleased to report that all lodges held Church 
Sen'ices. Our District held one in Kirkland Lake for the 
southern part and one in Timmins for the northern section. 
Our District Chaplain, Rev. Bro. J. A. Lougheed, conducted 
the Services which were well attended by the brethren. 

On my official visits. I was well supported by my 
•Di.'trict Officers and the Wor. Masters of our two Kirkland 
Lake Lodges. Wor. Bro. Loach and Wor. Bro. Clark were 
always in attendance. We also had Wor. Bro. Jones and 
Secretary, Bro. T. Harkins from Abitibi Lodge. To these 
ardent Masons, I offer my sincere thanks. 



156 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Attendance at all meetings was exceptionally good and 
in every case, true northern hospitality was shown. Every 
Master in the District is well skilled and is conducting his 
lodge in an excellent manner. Our degrees are being con- 
ferred in this District second to none. It is indeed a pleasure 
to watch a degree put on and. with the exception of a few 
small errors or omissions, it is practically perfect, 

The financial picture is very good in most lodges. In a 
few cases, arrears of dues were noted and the lodge was 
asked to endeavour to correct this without suspensions, if 
possible. 

I am pleased to note that all lodges are paying particular 
attention to applications for membership. In most cases, 
the investigating committees are doing a good job in check- 
ing on prospective members. As a result, we are getting 
excellent candidates. 

We were not so fortunate otherwise as the 'Grim Reaper' 
took a heavy toll on our members. Two Past Grand Lodge 
members in the persons of Very Wor. Bro. N. E. Loney and 
Very Wor. Bro. 0. L. Wright passed to our Grand Lodge 
Above and will be sadly missed by our Kirkland Lake lodges 
and their many friends all over. 

As an added note of interest, I had the pleasure of at- 
tending Golden Beaver Lodge in Timmins when Rt. Wor. 
Bro. D. Korman formed a lodge of all Jewish brethren and 
conferred the First Degree on his cousin, Bro. I, Korman. 
A large attendance enjoyed a pleasant evening. 

I am pleased to report that we held a Lodge of Instruc- 
tion in Abitibi Lodge, Iroquois Falls, on a Saturday after- 
noon in April, with Doric Lodge, Kirkland Lake, exempli- 
fying the First Degree on a dummy candidate, while Cor- 
inthian Lodge, Kirkland Lake, took the Third Degree. These 
degrees were well presented and great interest was taken 
by the brethren at the question and answer period. A worth- 
while Masonic afternoon was spent and was followed by a 
wonderful meal. My special thanks to Abitibi Lodge — they 
were excellent hosts. 

The highlight of my year was the visit of our Grand 
Master on September 23rd, 1961, when Aurum Lodge, No. 
704. was constituted and consecrated. He was accompanied 
by Rt. Wor. Bro. Geo. McQueen, Assistant to the Grand 
Secretary. Our Grand Master gave a wonderful address at 
the banquet held in the Mclntyre Arena to representatives 
from all lodges in the District. The ceremony in the lodge 
room was well conducted and was witnessed by as many as 
could crowd into a good-sized hall. All the brethren took 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1&62 157 

the opportunity of meeting our Grand Master at the refresh- 
ment hour after lodge was closed. 

The following Thursday, I had the pleasure of installing 
the Master, Wor. Bro. Archie Graham, and investing the 
other officers, with the assistance of my District Secretary 
and Past Masters from Golden Beaver Lodge. On June 6th, 
1962, I again attended the installation of officers in Aunim 
Lodge. This may be the youngest lodge but it is a credit to 
Temiskaming District. Wor. Bro. Archie Graham deser\'es 
a great deal of credit for his direction and leadership over 
the two year period. 

I will be forever grateful for the opportunity of serving 
as District Deputy for Temiskaming District. 

J. W. BRADLEY, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "1" 

It has been a pleasure and a source of valuable experi- 
ence for me to have had the honour of serving as the re^p- 
resentative of the Most Worshipful the Grand Master in 
District "1". The warm and cordial reception extended to me 
by the officers and members of all lodges confirmed the 
loyalty and esteem with which Grand Lodge is held in this 
District. 

Assuming my official duties. I appointed W. Bro. 
Frederick W. Thom, District Secretary, Bro. Rev. MacBeatJi 
Miller, District Chaplain, W. Bro. Clifford G. Wonfor, Chair- 
man, and W. Bro. George McGee, Secretary of the Committee 
on Masonic Education for this District, and W. Bra. Harry 
E. Mole, Chairman of the District Blood Donors' Committee. 
I wish to express my thanks and appreciation to these 
wort'hy brethren who fulfilled the duties of their respective 
offices in a most creditable manner. 

On my official visit to the nineteen lodges which com- 
prise this District, I was pleased to note the manner in 
which the degree work was executed. The deportment of the 
officers while discharging their various duties in the lodge 
room, the near perfect wording of our ritual by those 
brethren taking part in the' work, the constant concern that 
a full and correct intei-pretation of the lesson of each degree 
was conveyed to the candidate and the importance that he 
w^as made aware of his duties as a Freemason and a mem- 
ber of our Fraternity, all were most commendable. 

The District Secretary. W. Bro. Frederick W. Thom, 
reports that the minutes of the meetings of each lodge are 
clearly and properly recorded, that returns are regularly 



158 GR.\>'D LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

forwanied to Grand Lodge, that the lodge secretaries were 
most co-operative and are to be comm&nded for the care and 
accuracy of all lodge records, that the financial condition 
of each lodge is good in most cases and adequate provision 
is being made relative to benevolence and reserv^e. 

Masonic Education continues to receive prominent at- 
tention by the lodges at their regular meetings. Short talks 
of approximately five to ten minutes duration by members of 
the Lodse Education Committee, who, from my observation, 
-choose subjects which do create interest and which appear 
to be well received. The District Educational Meeting, held 
in the West Toronto Masonic Temple, Annette Street, was 
again an outstanding event. The theme, "an Explanation of 
•the Symbolism of the Junior Warden's Lecture", proved to 
be a most interesting subject and was greatly appreciated 
by the three hundred brethren who were in attendance. The 
success of this evening was assured by the untiring efforts 
of the District Committee on Masonic Education and the 
members of the Wardens' Association. 

Our District Church Service was held in Cooksville 
United Church, Cooksville, on Sunday, March 18th, at which 
time Bro. P^ev. MacBeath Miller, District Chaplain, delivered 
an appropriate and a most inspiring sermon. Also taking 
part in this Service was the Assistant Grand Chaplain, V.W. 
Bro. Rev. Joseph W. Stewart. In addition to the District 
Service, many lodges held individual and combined Church 
Services, all of which were well attended. 

The Chaii-man of the District Blood Donors' Committee, 
W. Bro. Hariy E. Mole, re-ports continued and renewed 
acti\'ity in this field of Masonic Benevolence and is confident 
that, when all lodge returns are completed, an increase in 
donations will be recorded for this year. 

There are occasions when one feels singularly proud to be 
a member of the Masonic Fraternity. Such an occasion was 
the reception tendered to M.W. Bro. Treleaven by the breth- 
ren of Toronto Districts "1", "2" and "5". Approximately 
-four hundred Masons were in attendance to convey their 
esteem for and demonstrate their loyalty to the Most Wor- 
shipful the Grand Master and they were richly rewarded by a 
most thought-provoking address. On this occasion I had the 
privilege and honour to present to the Grand Master the 
Worshipful Masters of Toronto District "1". 

On another occasion I had the opportunity of attending 
a "Ceremony of Remembrance" sponsored by Connaught 
Lodge at vrhich all lodges meeting in Connaught Temple 
participated. The solemnity of this meeting in remembrance 
of "Departed Merit" was most impressive. 

Tlie limitation of space does not permit a more detailed 
report of the many activities of District "1" during this past 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 159 

year. The visit of Kenmore Lodge, New York, to Memorial 
Lodge, the visit of St. John's Lodge 209A, London, Ont., to 
Connaug;ht Lodge, the reception to the Grand Master tendered 
by Kilwinning Lodge, the many social events sponsored by 
different lodges, to which I had the pleasure of having Mrs. 
Brown accompany me, are but a few which I shall retain 
in my memory for some time to come. 

In conclusion, may I, through this medium, express to 
the officers of Grand Lodge, the Masters, officers and 
brethren of District "1" my sincere thanks and appreciation 
for the many courtesies extended to me during my term of 
office. 

ROBT. F. BROWN, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "2" 

May I first thank the Grand Master for confirming my 
election as his representative in Toronto District "2". The 
faith of the brethren of Sunnylea Lodge in proposing my 
name, and the opportunity afforded me by the brethren of 
the District, in electing me to this high and impoi'tant office, 
create a gratitude that cannot be easily expressed in words. 
Now that my term of office has nearly run its course, my 
only hope is that I have been able to maintain the very high 
principles of Freemasonry as demonstrated by my predeces- 
sors. 

The official visits of the eighteen lodges in this District 
were made in the company of Wor. Bro. Grenville E. Tapp, 
w^ho, as District Secretary, was indispensable in carrying 
out and performing the many detailed duties of the District 
as well as the examination of the records of each lodge. 
Without exception, his report on the clearness and accuracy 
of all records of each lodge points up only one thing, that the 
secretaries of each lodge are performing a very valuable 
service to and for the brethren of their respective lodges 
and for this they are to be heartily commended. 

Performance of the work as observed in my Official 
Visits was of a very high standard and evidenced careful 
attention to the ritual and training of the officer material. 
I am, therefore, ver>' happy to report the healthy, thriving 
condition of Masonry in Toronto District "2". 

It was my endeavour throughout the year to see that 
meetings were set in motion at the appointed hour and brought 
to a close with sufficient despatch to permit the banquet haJI 
to be vacated by 11.00 p.m. The co-operation of the Wor- 



160 (;rand lodoe of canada annual communication 

shipful Masters in this respect was very much in evidence and 
appreciated. 

The very happy privilege of having the opportunity, 
with the District Secretary, to attend with our wives at a 
great number of individual Lodge Ladies' Nights, afforded 
us a most delightful pleasure. 

A majority of the lodges held their own Divine Services 
which again permitted us to fraternize with the brethren. 
The District Divine Service, held in Kingsway-Lambton 
United Church under the outstanding leadership of Rev. Dr. 
Alan R. Husband, the District Chaplain, was very largely 
attended by the District as a whole, with brethren from 
other Toronto Districts and as far distant as Kitchener and 
Mount Forest. 

The year 1962 was high-lighted again, when District "2", 
in conjunction with District "1" and District "5", had the 
honor of a visit from Most Worshipful Brother Treleaven, 
at whose reception the Grand Master endeared himself with 
his ready wit and forthright sincerity. 

A special word of appreciation to all the Past Masters, 
Worshipful Masters, Wardens and members of all the Lodges, 
for the warm, friendly and helpful assistance tendered the 
Grand Master's Representative on all occasions. 

The year was not without its sadness however, for the 
voice from Heaven called a large number of our companions 
to rest from their labours, some having been leaders in 
Grand Lodge (recorded in the Report of the Committee on 
Fraternal Dead), the others giving of their talents to their 
own lodges. 

One would be most remiss if a special word of appreci- 
ation on behalf of the District were not tendered to M. Wor. 
Bro. Harry L. Martyn for the unstinting time and advice that 
were available at any hour of the day or night when any 
problem arose. To him my personal thanks for the wonder- 
ful co-operation. 

We were most fortunate to have a very active and well- 
skilled District Committee on Masonic Education working 
under the chairmanship of Wor. Bro, David W. Forrester of 
Mimico Lodge and Wor. Bro. Andrew F. Nisbet Jr. as the 
Secretary, from Mount Dennis Lodge. These brethren were 
most ably assisted by Wor. Bro. Walter H. Wake of Parkdale 
Lodge. Wor. Bro. Howard A. Phillips of Mount Sinai Lodge, 
Wor. Bro. C. Norman Bell of High Park Lodge, Wor. Bro. 
Albert L. Lee of Melita Lodge, Wor. Bro. Mervyn L. Buck- 
ingham of Transportaltion Lodge, and by one who has 
contributed so much to the District in the person of Wor. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 161 

Bro. Leslie R. Salisbury of Coronation Lodge, as Honorary 
Chairman. My sincere and profound thanks to each and 
every one of the above, to the Distinct Secretary and the 
District Chaplain for the assistance and co-operation that 
made the past year one that will rank as a highlight in my 
life. 

G. H. WESTON, D.D.G.M. 

TORONTO DISTRICT "3" 

My year as District Deputy Grand Master of Toronto 
District "3" has been a source of pleasure and valuable 
experience to me, and I find it a pleasure to express my 
thanks and gratitude to my brethren of Toronto District "3" 
for honouring St. Johns Lodge. No. 75, by electing me to the 
office of District Deputy Grand Master, and to Most Worship- 
ful Bro, R. W, Treleaven for confirming the election. 

My first official duty was to appoint Wor. Bro. Fred C. 
Webb of St. Johns Lodge, No. 75, as District Secretary, 
Wor. Bro. Webb accompanied me on all my official visits and 
reported that the secretaries of the lodges in the District 
are to be commended for the capable manner in which the 
lodge books and records are kept. I express my appreciation 
to Wor. Bro. Webb for bis capable assistance during my term 
of office. 

I appointed, as District Chairman of Masonic Education, 
Wor. Bro. James Watt, who held two Masonic Education 
meetings. The first meeting was sponsored by Orient Lodge, 
No. 339. The mechanics of the First Degree were exempli- 
fied. The second meeting was sponsored by St. Johns Lodge, 
No. 75, in which the mechanics of the Third Degree were dealt 
with and explained. The attendance at both these meetings 
exceeded our expectations. On March 29th, 1962, a Masonic 
Study Group was organized, assisted by Wor. Bro. Watt. At 
this meeting the officers were elected. This Study Group 
has been formed for the purpose of encouraging the brethren 
of the District in Masonic Education and information. The 
initial meeting was well attended, and it has been planned to 
hold three of these meetings during the year, and to have 
a qualified speaker at each meeting. 

The District Di\ine Church Service was held on Sundav, 
November 12th. 1961, at All Saints Anglican Church, The 
Kingsway, and was well attended by the brethren. A very 
inspiring sermon was delivered by Bro. The Rev. Robert H. 
M. Kerr, District Chaplain. It was also my pleasure to 
attend other District Church Services on behalf of Toronto 
District "3". 



Orien 



I appointed Wor. Bro. G. W. Furlong, Past Master of 
nt Lodge, No. 339, as Chairman for the solicitation of 



162 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Blood Donors, and I am pleased to report a substantial 
increase in the number of brethren donating to this worthy 
cause. I extend my sincere thanks to Wor. Bro. Furlong 
for his untiring efforts and co-operation. 

I made an official visit to all fifteen lodges in the 
District, and I v;ould like to express my gratitude for the 
very warm welcome and courteous reception extended to me 
on each occasion. I was privileged to witness the conferring 
of all three degrees. On every occasion the work of each 
degree was performed with dignity and dispatch, and in a 
very impressive manner. The District Secretary reported 
favourably on the records and also the financial position of 
the lodges. It was also my pleasure to attend all of the 
installations. 

In the matter of fire insurance, I am able to report that 
most lodges are carrying adequate coverage. However, 
where this is not the case, I advised them to secure greater 
protection. 

The Wor. Masters throughout the District are endeavour- 
ing to promote more talks on Masonic Education to en- 
courage lodge attendance. However, it disturbs me to find 
a slight decrease in attendance in the District, which I hope 
will be overcome as a result of the efforts of the newly 
formed Study Group. 

On March 14th, I had the privilege to attend the re- 
ception in honour of the M.W. the Grand Master tendered 
by Districts "1", "2" and "5". After the banquet the brethren 
had the pleasure of hearing a very eloquent and inspiring 
address by our Grand Master. 

During my term of office it was my pleasure to present 
a Sixty Year Pin to Bro. Arthur Watt, Orient Lodge, No. 
339, and also a Veteran's Jubilee Medal to Wor. Bro. Joseph 
Harrison of the same lodge. 

Mrs. Dodson and I will be forever grateful for the kind 
hospitality we received as honoured guests at several Ladies' 
Nights. The many kind friends we made will ever be re- 
membered by us both. 

On November 28th, 1961, it was my privilege to be 
present at the Dedication of Woodbridge Masonic Temple, 
and I was honoured by acting as the Grand Senior Warden. 
I also assisted in the organizing and the Dedication of 
Scarborough Masonic Temple, again taking part as the 
Grand Senior Warden. My last official duty was to assist 
the Grand Master in the Dedication of Zeredatha Masonic 
T^emple at Uxbridge, and, in the absence of the Deputy Grand 
Master. I had the honour of acting in his place. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 163 

In concluding my report, I would like to take this op- 
portunity of expressing my appreciation to the Grand Secre- 
tary, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, for his co-opera:tion and his 
prompt reply to all correspondence. 

To the Wor. Masters of the lodges, the officers and 
brethren throughout the District, who so faithfully sup- 
ported me by attending my many visits, I wish every 
happiness and prosperity in the future, for they have indeed 
made my year a happy one. I bespeak the same for my 
successor. 

THOS. DODSON, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO DISTRICT "4" 

It has been a privilege to represent the Grand Master 
as D.D.G.M. and I herewith submit my report on the condition 
of Masonry in Toronto District "4" for your consideration. 

The progressiveness of Masonry in this District is evi- 
denced by the institution of a new lodge, the dedication of 
a new temple and the heavy influx of candidates into some 
of the more active lodges. 

The District Secretary, W. Bro. Herbert K. Lee, ful- 
filled the duties of the office in an excellent manner and his 
services to the District merit commendation. Other appoint- 
ments were W. Bro. Ronald V. Campkin as District Chaplain, 
W. Bro. Stanley Cecil as Chairman of Masonic Education 
and W. Bro. John J. Laing as Chairman of the Blood Donors' 
Committee. Their achievements on behalf of the brethren 
of the District are praiseworthy. 

I must express my indebtedness and appreciation to the 
many Present and Past Grand Lodge Officers who supported 
and assisted me on every possible occasion. There are many 
Grand Lodge Officers who, over the years, have been an 
example, and have offered encouragement, instruction and 
guidance. Even though busy because of their eminent 
positions in the Craft, they have in this past year given 
me such help as can never be repaid. Little wonder that 
they enjoy the confidence of their brethren in Masonry! 

Mv personal thanks go to the Masters and the Wardens 
of each of the lodges for their support of district activities 
includine Church Services and Education meetings. The 
many kindnesses extended by them, made our efforts seem 
well worth while. 

Accompanied by the District Seci*etary, I officially in- 
spected all lodges in the District. I must pay tribute to the 



164 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Secretaries and the Treasurers of the lodges who, as men of 
careful integrity, work to keep the affairs of the constituent 
lodges in good condition. The ritual deserved much praise 
on every occasion and I feel that the high calibre of the work 
is due in large part to the many fraternal visits throughout 
the District and with other Districts. Certainly the Masters 
and Wardens exemplify great skill in their work and are 
thereby setting a fine example and offering excellent leader- 
ship to their brethren. 

On each inspection, the District Secretary made a 
thorough examination of the lodge records and reported his 
findings to me. In some instances written recommendations 
and suggestions were later sent out. The records of all 
lodges are in good condition and convey a true picture of 
each lodge's standing. 

Financially many lodges made substantial gains during 
the year, indicating good administration. Only one lodge 
showed a deficit on the year's operation. This will be 
remedied by an increase in dues. 

While some lodges have no members in arrears, other 
lodges have a large number of members owing back dues. 
I found that the Masters and Secretaries are working to 
correct this situation and, in some cases, I recommended 
that the Past Masters be called upon to interview the neglect- 
ful brethren. We must remember that one of the more im- 
portant factors in our Masonic work is the maintenance of 
attendance, interest and co-operation of our older brethren. 
Attendance remains at approximately the same level as in 
the past few years. This can be expected to increase in the 
Scarborough area because of the improved facilities of the 
new Temple. 

Although 83 members were lost by death during the year, 
there was an overall increase in district membership of 48 
members. 

In the larger lodges, I made reference to the report of 
the Committee on Warrants regarding taking steps leading 
to the formation of new lodges. 

Two District Education meetings were held in addition 
to other District Education activities. The first meeting 
demonstrated the Ceremony of Installation and was attended 
by over one hundred Past Masters, officers and brethren. 
Some thirty brethren took part in the demonstration and 
every lodge in the District was well represented. The second 
District Education meeting consisted of several short 
dramatizations of situations which arise from time to time 
in most lodges. This meeting was also well attended by 
well over one hundred interested Masons. Throughout the 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 165 

year I stressed the importance of Masonic Education and 
urged all brethren, officers in particular, to make constant 
reference to the Manual for Masonic Instructors and Students. 
Many Manuals were distributed through the District. 

It was my pleasure to preside at the Institution of 
Universe Lodge U.D. on October 21st, 1961. The first 
Master, Wor. Bro. R. J. A. Young, is giving experienced 
leadership in this new lodge and thirteen of the charter 
members have been in the Craft over twenty-five years. 

The Dedication of the Scarborough Temple took place on 
February 8th of this year, and is an example of Masonic 
team work under the guidance of a skilled Master, W. Bro. 
Donald MacDonald. Many successful nights have been held 
in this new Temple to date. It is hoped that this example 
will encourage the brethren of other Temple Boards to work 
with renewed vigour to renovate and to make available 
presentable premises with complete facilities, suitable for 
all of the activities, including Ladies' Nights, for, after 
all, our Temples are our Masonic Homes. 

The District Church Service was held in St. Aidan's 
Church and the District Chaplain, Wor. Bro. Ronald V. 
Campkin, preached an excellent sermon of particular interest 
to Masons. The co-operation of all Masters and all lodges 
made this well-attended Service an outstanding success. 

In John Ross Robertson Lodge, I was privileged to 
present a 50 Year Veteran's Jubilee Medal to W. Bro. Ernest 
Mills. There are in our District almost one thousand Masons 
with membership extending 25 years or more; foii:y-two of 
these have been in the Craft over 50 years. Many of these 
"old timers" attend their lodges regularly, many in the 
capacity of officers. 

On many occasions, I suggested that new officers should 
be chosen with extreme care from among the most highly 
qualified of the brethren to ensure the continuance of high 
standards by those who will in the future represent our 
Fraternity. 

This has been a rewarding year because of the freely- 
offered support and services of so many brethren sincerely 
interested in the work of Masonry. The year has provided 
many opportunities to associate with Grand Lodge officers 
of comprehensive Masonic knowledge and experience, and 
leaves me with pleasant memories to be carried throughout 
my lifetime. 

It is with honest pride in my brethren of Toronto Dis- 
trict "4" that I report the condition of Masonry in our Dis- 
trict to be of the highest order.

166 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL C50MMUNICATI0N 

TORONTO DISTRICT "5" 

It has been a distinct honour and a privilege to have 
represented the Most Worshipful the Grand Master in 
Toronto District "5". To serve as District Deputy Grand 
Master is a very rewarding experience and I hope that in 
some small way* I have contributed something to Masonry 
in this District. 

I have visited, at least once, each of the thirty lodges of 
the District and I have found the ritual to be well delivered, 
and the degrees well conducted. The books of the Secretary 
and Treasurer of each lodge are well kept and the finances of 
every lodge are in good condition. 

Masonic Education has received considerable attention in 
most of the lodges and two Lodges of Instruction were held, 
the first at Metropolitan Lodge on the evening of Wednesday, 
February 14, 1962, and the second was held under the 
auspices of Harmony Lodge, Thomhill, on the evening of 
Monday. April 30, 1962. These meetings were very well 
attended and I wish to pay special tribute to R.W. Bro. 
George McQueen, R.W. Bro. Willard Gordon, R.W. Bro. 
Frank Malcolm. R.W. Bro. James Stevenson, R.W. Bro. John 
Dodd, and V.W. Bro. John Eyre and all the Masters and 
Wardens for their very able assistance on these occasions. 

The Spiritual side of Masonry has been well demonstrated 
in the District, as many of the lodges held Divine Services. 
TTie District Church Service was held on Sunday evening, 
April 28, in St. Hilda's Anglican Church at Eglinton and 
Dufferin Streets and was conducted by the Rector, Bro. The 
Rev. Keith Kiddell, who is the District Chaplain. 

It has been my privilege to attend a number of Institu- 
tion and Dedication Ceremonies of lodges outside this 
District, and these visits were of great value and interest. 

Toronto District "5" together with Toronto Districts "1" 
and "2" held a recention for the Grand Master in the Banquet 
Hall of the Yonge St. Temple. The Reception was extremely 
well-attended by present and past Grand Lodge Officers and 
Masons of this area. 

Together with Mrs. Lightfoot, Mrs. Lowry and W. Bro. 
Ralph Lightfoot, I attended many social evenings held by 
some of the lodges of the District. We enjoyed these even- 
ings and made new friends and renewed old friendships. 

I would like to take this opportunity of paying tribute 
to W. Bro. Lightfoot for his very able assistance as the 
District Secretary in performing his duties in a very efficient 
and capable manner. 

In closing, may I say that the condition of Masonry in 
Toronto District "5" is excellent, and the future is in capable 
hands. 

FRANK P. LOWRY, D.D.G.M. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1<)62 167 

TORONTO DISTRICT "7" 

The honour of serving as the representative of the 
Most Wor. the Grand Master in Toronto District "7" has been 
a pleasure and a very rewarding experience. As I review 
the many acti\ities of the past year, I am conscious of the 
fact that one cannot possibly find words to express the feel- 
ings of the fellowship and the hospitality enjoyed by the 
D.D.G.M. during this year of office, nor is it possible to 
comprehend the admiration and respect with which the 
Grand Lodge is held throughout the District. 

My many visits were more enjoyable and my duties were 
made much easier by the company and able assistance of 
the District Secretary, Wor. Bro. W. Elwood Dale. His wise 
counsel and the encouragement he offered were much ap- 
preciated. 

The duties of Chairman of Masonic Education were 
carried out in a very commendable manner by Wor. Bro. 
G. M. Fleming. This was climaxed by a District Masonic 
Education meeting on March 29th UTider the auspices of 
Huron-Binice Lx)dge by dispensation gi-anted to Wy^r. Bro. 
Jack King, Wor. Master, to whom I offer my sincere thanks 
and appreciation. Wor. Bro. Fleming proved himself a 
skilled craftsman by the success of this meeting. 

I am deeply grateful to Wor. Bro. Harry Jowett of Grey 
Lodge who agreed to act as chairman of Blood Donors' 
Services, we have 536 registered Blood Donors in this 
District. I assure you the efforts of Wor. Bro. Jowett are 
much appreciated. 

I was fortunate in having Bro. Rev. Keith Tudor of 
Peel Lodge as District Chaplain. He has given both moral 
and spiritual leadership throughout the District. I regret 
I was personally unable, due to illness, to attend the District 
Divine Service held in Woodbridge United Church. Sunday, 
May 27th. The District Chaplain delivered the Sermon on 
that occasion and I am most grateful to him and also to 
Very Wor. Bro. Gordon McGillvary, who arranged the music, 
and to Rev. Morris and the ladies of the Church for their 
hospitality. 

One of the highlights of the year in District "7" was 
the dedication of the new Masonic Temple at Woodbridge, 
built and completed by the brethren of Blackwood Lodge, 
No. 311. This ceremony was conducted by Most Wor. Bro. 
R.W. Treleaven who was assisted by numerous past and 
present Grand Lodge Officers. 

It would be impossible to record all the visits and 
pleasant experiences I have enjoyed. I was able to attend 



168 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

most of the Installation Ceremonies and several Divine 
Services and I appreciate the many invitations to Ladies' 
Nights and other social events which I was able to attend in 
company with Mrs. Russell and share with the brethren 
and enjoy their friendship, 

I regret that I was confined to hospital for four weeks 
during the months of April and May, and I am most grate- 
ful to Rt. Wor. Bro. Howard Gahagan and Rt, Wor. Bro. A. 
E. Calverley, who very kindly carried on the work of Masonry 
in this District by repi'esenting the Grand Master at the 
official visits to Remembrance Lodge on May 4th and to 
Robertson Lodge on May 14th. I can truthfully say these 
acts were just examples of the co-operation and assistance 
I have received from all Masons throughout the District. 

In conclusion. I am happy to report that, from my visits 
to all lodges in the District, I am confident that the Masters 
and officers of each and every lodge are dedicated Masons, 
well skilled in the work of the Craft and that Masonry in 
this District has a glorious past and a very promising future. 

HAROLD G. RUSSELL, D.D.G.M. 



VICTORIA DISTRICT 

The honor and privilege of serving as the representative 
of the Grand Master in Victoria District is an experience 
that T will always cherish. To tho=e who made this pos- 
sible I extend my sincere thanks. I also wish to acknowledge 
the gracious hiospitality, co-operation and support of the 
officers and brethren on my official and many fraternal 
visits. 

T have been ably supported by Wor. Bro. A. H. DeBois 
as District Secretary, Bro. Rev. James A. Macartney as 
District Chaplain, V. Wor. Bno. G. K. Johnson as Supervisor 
of Masonic Education and R. Wor. Bro. C. H. Heels as 
District Blood Donor Chairman. 

I visited each lodge once officially and found the lodges 
in the capable hands of interested and efficient Worshipful 
Masters. While' the number of petitions has not been great, 
there has been sufficient work to keep the lodges busy. I 
found the officers faithful, diligent, anxious to perform the 
ritual in an accurate and dignified manner and doing an 
excellent job. The Past Masters have also rendered valuable 
assistance. 

My District Chaplain was a source of strength to me 
and was present at all of my official visits and spoke at 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 169 

several, leaving with the brethren many worthwhile thoughts 
spiritually and fraternally. 

A Chairman of Masonic Education has been appointed 
in each lodge in the District and brief talks were given on 
many loccasions. In addition, the Wardens' Association has 
been particularly active and visited lodges on six occasions, 
conferring degrees and participating in Masonic Education 
under the direction of V. Wior. Bro. G. K. Johnson, who 
rendered valuable service in this branch of Masonry. This 
activity on the part of the Wardens has proven "to be a 
wonderful education to future Masters, giving them know,- 
ledge of the work, confidence and assurance to qualify them 
for that office. 

Several Ladies' Nights have been held, adding to the 
social side of Masonry. 

One of the highliehts of mv term was the visit of the 
Grand Master. Most Wor. Bro. R. W. Treleaven, at Cambray 
on April 12th, when around 200 brethren shared in a banquet 
and listened to his excellent address. 

A District Church Service was conducted in the church 
of my District Chaplain at Cambray on May 20th, filling 
two-thirds of the church. Provision had been made for 
loudspeakers in the basement where the overflow congreg- 
ation participated in the Service. Church services were also 
held by the individual lodges and were well attended. 

Faithful Brethren Lodge, No. 77, Lindsay, is about to 
complete its thirteenth year with every member paid up and 
only five suspensions of members during that period. Other 
lodges report only a small number of members in arrears 
and the few. where this is a problem, are endeavouring to 
correct the situation. 

A Travelling Gavel donated by the late R. Wor. Bro. 
Fred W. Warren of Spry Lodge, No. 406, Fenelon Falls, to 
promote int°r-visiting between lodges in the District has 
made a complete circuit and is about to repeat that perform- 
ance. We deeply regret the passing of R. Wor. Bro. Warren 
this year. He was 54 years a Mason and active throughout. 

I wish to report that Masonry in Victoria District is 
in excellent condition; nine of the thirteen lodges own their 
tem.ples; the officers are active and efficient; attendance at 
every one of my official visits was exceptionallv good; 211 
registered at my final visit in my mother lodge; five Past 
D.D.G.M's are Lodge Secretaries and others are Trustees, 



170 GRAND bODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Treasurers, etc. indicating a continuing interest in their 
respective lodges. 

Finally, for this memorable year, I extend my thanks 
and appreciation to all who have assisted in making it a 
very happy and profitable one. 

SHERMAN J. MOORE, D.D.G.M. 
WELLINGTON DISTRICT 

I respectfully beg to submit herewith my report on the 
condition of Masonry in Wellington District. 

No one man could undertake the arduous duties involved 
in properly fulfilling the position of representative of the 
Most Worshipful the Grand Master in any District unless 
he had the help and support of many devoted and sincere 
Masons. I have been fortunate in having brethren at my 
side who gave unstintingly of their time and talents because 
of the faith which is theirs in Masonry and its teachings. 
There was evidence throughout the whole District of tiie 
service given to the cause of Masonry by Past Grand Lodge 
Officers. Past Mastei-s and Worshipful Masters who all had 
a desire to keep active the spirit and teachings of our wonder- 
ful fraternity. 

All twenty-two lodges of Wellington District received an 
official visit and the reception accorded to me in each 
lodge reflected the sincere esteem that the whole fraternity 
holds for the Grand Master and his officers. On each of 
these visits a deeree was conferred and it was evident at all 
times that the Worshipful Masters and their officers were 
sincere in their work and anxious to pass on to the candidates 
their faith in Masonry and their conviction that only the 
best in any man was e-ood enough. From the reports pre- 
pared by the District Secretary I made suggestions which, 
I feel, may be of some assistance. 

Attendance at regular meetings averages between 25% 
and 30% of the membership. In many cases, especially in 
the larger lodges, newlv raised brethren are falling off after 
a few months and are losing interest, not only in their own 
lodees, but in Masonrv in general. I have found that so 
many of us. after attaining the rank of Past Master, feel 
that it is no longer necessary to take an active part in lodge 
work. Manv others felt iust the reverse, that the lodge 
cannot do ^nthout them and that they should be called upon 
to tJa-'-ticinate in everv degree. I have stressed that, as 
Past Masters, it is our duty to encourage and instruct these 
younger and newer brethren in the work and foster their 
desire for knowledge of the Craft. This, I humbly submit. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 171 

would retain the interest and make full use of the talents 
and energies of these brethren. 

Stress has been laid on punctuality in starting meetings, 
proper planning: and expeditious handling. We do not sug- 
gest racing through the ritual and thus robbing the work 
of its beauty and effect. But a meeting which lasts long 
into the night is most ineffective in every way. I am happy 
to report that the Worshipful Masters adopted these sug- 
gestions and the resultant attendance and interest has justi- 
fied the effort. 

At the outset of my term of office I resolved to en- 
courage and foster Masonic Education. To this end Wor. 
Bro. James Spark was apuointed District Chairman of this 
important committee. He brought to his office an enthusiasm 
and deep-rooted conviction that has paid wonderful dividends. 
Interest has been increased and Wor. Bro. Spark is to be 
commended on his accomplishments, especially for the fact 
that manv of our junior brethren have eagerlv taken part 
in preparing and presenting in open lodge a brief treatise 
on Masonic subjects. It has been found that short talks, 
of from two to five minutes duration, have been presented 
admirablv in all lodges and have created an appetite for 
more. Every lodge in the District has undertaken to include 
in the agenda of each meeting a Masonic Education topic 
presented in this way. 

Special meetings were arranged for the District Senior 
"Wardens and Junior Wardens and the respective Grand 
Lodge Wardens were guests of honour on these occasions. 
The interest displayed in these evenings and the pleasure 
with which we received our Grand Wardens pay tribute to 
the worthiness of these projects. A very rewarding exper- 
ience was the occasion when Waverley Lodge played host 
to the Worshipful Masters of the District. It was an in- 
spiration to see the Masters of the lodges gathered together 
with so many of their brethren and confer a •degree in such 
an imposing manner. 

This has been a busy but happy and rewarding vear. I 
have endeavoured to bring to the office of D.D.G.M. the 
dignity and respect exhibited by my predecessors and worthy 
of this distinction. I am grateful to all those who helped 
to make this an outstanding period of my life and for being 
able to enjoy the true meaning of brotherhood with so many 
of my fellows. 

Whilst feeling a great deal of personal pride in being 
the representative of the Grand Master in Wellington District, 
I am also very humble in the fact that I was considered 
worthy of that high offic<> and trust that I have fulfilled my 
duties faithfully and well. 

ARTHUR B. BARTON, D.D.G.M. 



172 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMXJNICATION 

WESTERN DISTRICT 

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to represent 
Western District as its District Deputy Grand Master diiring 
the 1961-62 year. To the brethren who nominated and later 
elected me and to the Grand Master who confirmed the 
election I offer my sincere thanks. Mine has been a pleasant 
task. While I previously knew many Masons_ within and 
without Western District, my acquaintanceship has been 
greatly increased by meeting and mixing with other fine 
Masons who make up a part of our great Masonic family. 

The ten lodges in the District have been visited. Western 
is a vast, thinly settled area. In visiting all the lodges, plus 
going to and from Grand Lodge, a District Deputy Grand 
Master will travel in excess of seventy-five hundred miles. 
Piossibly this is not a great distance in terms of outer space 
but it does represent something when travelling throughout 
North-Western Ontario. It has been a pleasure going about 
the area with V. Wor. Bro. Plumridge, my District Chaplain, 
and W. Bro. Moline, my District Secretary. These brethren 
have been excellent companions; -md efficient officers. I 
offer them my warmest appreciation. 

I have seen work in all degrees and would say, without 
exception, it has been performed with proficiency, dignity 
and zeal. Minor variations do exist but I feel they are minor 
in character only, and while we should strive for absolute 
uniformitv we must not lose sight of the human element 
with which we deal. 

Our membership will show a small increase this year. 
We do continue to suffer heavy losses through death. This 
is something which we cannot control. My sympathy is 
extended to those whose loved ones have been called to the 
Grand Lodge Above. 

In examining the affairs of the lodges I note that all 
appear in a solvent state. Adequate fire insurance is carried 
and premises are well maintained. Arrears of dues, with 
two exceptions, do not anpear excessive. Lodges concerned 
are taking steps to rectify this situation. 

A program of Masonic Education is being conducted by 
most Indees. Much credit for this situation is due to my 
immediate predecessor, R.W. Bro. Norman E. Johnson, who 
did much to introduce and later to encourage Masonic Edu- 
cation in the District. Thp Kenora-Keewatin Past Masters' 
shield for Ma^^onic knowledge was won this year by a team 
from Colder Star Lodge ablv coached by the Junior Warden, 
Bro. David Whitten. 

One hundred and ninety-nine brethren made blood 
donations up to the date of final report. This is a substantial 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 173 

increase over the previous year. The figure would have been 
considerably more had it been possible to delay rejKjrting for 
a fev.' days. A second travelling clinic visited the District 
and was well patronized shortly after the dead-line for 
reporting. Blood donations could be increased if Red Cross 
can arrange clinics at points not now served. One lodge 
reported six of its members gave blood to save the life of a 
seventh. Do you know of a finer example of Masonry at 
wiork? 

Due to distance between lodges an imjKjrtant phase of 
Masonry is missing in Western District. I refer to inter- 
lodge visits. Kenora and Keewatin. due to proximity, can 
and do enjoy such visits. Some of the southern lodges are 
also so located. Golden Star and Sioux Lookout are sixtv-five 
miles from each other, while Chukuni is one hundred and 
forty miles away from its nearest neighbour. Atikokan 
presently has its access by road from the east only. It is 
two hundred and eighty miles by road to the closest lodge 
in the District. Rail travel from the west does '^ot lend 
itself to inter-lodge visits. These distances and isolation 
made visits difficult and could result in ledges becoming 
parochial in outlook. I venture to say there are a number of 
brethren in the District who have never sat in any lodge, 
other than the one in which he was made a Mason. Such a 
restriction of view is not good for Masonry. 

Items of interest obsei'\''ed in my travels was a father 
conferring the' Third Degree upon his son. Another was 
twin brothers being initiated on the same evening. I men- 
tion these two incidents because I feel they belong in the 
pages of Masonic history. 

I am arlad to report that most lodges have held a Divine 
Service during the year. I like, too, the idea, which is 
spreading, for holding annual Memorial Services for depart- 
ed members. It is an added means of cherishing their 
memorj'. 

In concluding. I wish to say that, wherever I have 
travelled in my District T have had demonstrated to me 
brotherly love and affection. To Grand Lodge has beet> 
shown the veneration and respect to which it is justly 
entitled. 

J. A. COX, D.D.G.M. 



WILSON DISTRICT 

Tn July 1961 I was honored by being elected District 
Demity Grand Master for Wilson District. It has been a 
wonderful privilege to have this experience. The friendly 



174 GR.'U<rD LODGE OF CAIsTADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

and courteous manner in which I was received in all twenty- 
three lodges in the District showed the high esteem all 
Masons have for the Grand Master and his representatives. 

I appointed Wor. Bro. Howard Butler as District Secre- 
tary, Wor. Bro. George Davis as District Chaplain, and Wor. 
Bro. Victor Moore as District Director of Masonic Education. 
These brethren accompanied me on all my officiaV visits 
and fulfilled their repective offices in a splendid manner. 

Every lodge in the District conferred a degree on my 
official visit. The interest the Masters and their officers 
took in doing their work well showed that Masonry in the 
District is of a high standard. The great number of visitors 
that attended from other lodges showed that the brethren 
of the District enjoy their Masonry and are showing it to 
others. 

I had the privilege of presenting three Fifty Year 
Medals and one Sixty Year Pin. On June 25 I am having 
■the Dleasure of presenting a Fifty Year Past Master Medal 
to R. Wor. Bro. D. M. Sutherland, a member of St. John's, 
104, Norwich, my Mother Lodge. 

I have enjoyed visiting with District Deputv Grand 
Masters from other districts and have had other D.D.G.M's 
and other Grand Lodge officers visit with me on my official 
visits. The new friends one makes by visiting in Masonry is 
a wonderful experience. 

Most of the lodges in the District held Ladies' Nights 
and Mrs. Burrill and I were privileged to attend a number of 
these special functions and enjoyed getting acquainted with 
more brethren and their ladies. 

Most of the lodges held Divine Services which were 
well attended. I attended all of these Services that was 
possible. 

In October the District Divine Service was held in 
Norwich United Church with a good attendance. Verv Wor. 
Bro. Rev. G. A. Shields delivered the message which was 
enjoyed by all. 

I have enjoyed working with the Past Masters' and 
Wardens' Association which held three district meetings 
during the year. At one of these the brethren of Walsing- 
ham Lodge exemplified the Fellowcraft Degree and a 
period of questions and answers was held afterwards which 
proved verv interesting. At +he other two meetings there 
were speakers on Mas-^nic Education which was of great 
inte-^est to all attending. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 175 

In conclusion, I wish to thank St. John's Lodge, 104, and 
the brethren of Wilson District for extending to me the 
honor and privilege of ser\'ing them as District Deputy 
Grand Master. I also wish to thank all Grand Lodge officers 
who helped me in any way. 

WELDON F. BURRILL, D.D.G.M. 



WINDSOR DISTRICT 

It has been a real honour and a privilege to represent 
the Grand Master in the Windsor District in the past year. 
The cordial and warm welcome which I received at every 
visitation illustrated the respect with which Grand Lodge 
is regarded by the brethren of the District. 

I attended sixteen Official Inspections and eighteen 
Installations, as well as numerous visits on other occasions 
to the nineteen lodcres in the District. I am deeply indebted 
to Rt. Wor. Bro. Dr. Geo. Turner and Rt. Wor. *Bro. John 
Briegp who ?n willineb- insoectpr! three loderes durinsr the 
time I spent in hospital after undergoing surgery. On all 
occasions I was received with dignity and respect. 

Immediately on assuming office, I appointed Wor. Bro. 
Beverlv Milner as my District Secretary. He has fulfilled 
his duties in a most satisfactory manner and has accompanied 
me on my numerous visitations. He assures me that the 
lodges are in good financial condition and the records have 
been well kept. 

The Committee on Masonic Education was under the ex- 
cellent guidance of Bro. Han-y Harding and Wor. Bro. 
Norman Rattew. These two brethren eave numerous talks on 
Masonic Education throughout the District and are to be 
highly congratulated for the splendid work they performed. 

Wor. Bro. Canon R. C. Brown. D.D. was Chaplain for 
the Windsor District, and T wish to thank him for the 
manner in which he discharged his duties when time per- 
mitted, owing to his hea\'y schedule as Rector of St. Mail's 
Anglican Church, Windsor. 

The highlight of the vear was the reception and banquet 
in honour of our Grand Master, Most Wor Bro. Treleaven. 
on Thursday. March 29th. which was attended by over three 
hundred enthusiastic brethren. The Grand Master srave an 
inspiring address that w^ill be long remembered by those 
present. 

The Windsor District was also honoured on Thursday, 
May 24th, when our Deputy Grand Master, Rt. Wor. Bro. 



176 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

J. A. IrA'ine, paid a fraternal visit to attend Past and Present 
Grand Lodge Officers' Night sponsored by Palace Lodge, N'O. 
604. The reception was preceded by a dinner in the ballroom 
of the Temple, after which the chairs were occupied by Past 
and Present Grand Lodge Officers of the Windsor District, 
who conferred the Fellowcraft Degree. 

The Windsor District Past Masters' and Officers' Assoc- 
iation has had another successful year. Our Association is 
a great inspiration to the younger officers as, through it, 
the activities of the various lodges are made known. The 
Blood Donors' Committee, under the direction of Bro. T. 
Fairhurst. continues to carry out its humanitarian vrork and, 
after a slow start, is now beginning to show great improve- 
ment, due to the untiring efforts of Bro. Fairhurst and the 
various Lodge Committee Chairmen. 

I was invited to exchange visits wath several lodges in 
other Districts. These included visits to Chatham, Dresden, 
St. Marys and Thamesville. I also had the pleasure of 
attending the Centennial Celebration of Burns' Lodge No. 
158. and the District Reception for the Most Wor. Grand 
Master at Wyoming on Friday, May 25th. I also attended 
Ashlar Lode:e. No. 610 at Bvron. on the occasion of Rt. 
Wor. Bro. R. C. Fuller's Official Visit to his Mother Lodge 
on the 28th of May, when they celebrated their 40th Anni- 
versary. Several of the lodges held Ladies' Nights and on 
these occasions Mrs. Taylor and I were invited guests. May 
I express to the brethren of these lodges our appreciation 
for the many kindnesses and courtesies extended to us. 

Individual Lodge Divine Services were held by most of 
the lodges in the District, in addition to the District Service 
which was held in the Salvation Army Citadel on May 27th., 
and was very well attended. 

On Mondav, June 4th, the Windsor District was saddened 
by the death of our oldest member in the person of Bro. John 
Liddell. A Masonic Funeral Service was held in the Masonic 
Temple on Wednesday, June 6th, and the esteem in which 
Bro. Liddell was held in the hearts of his Masonic Brethren 
was proven by the' attendance of over three hundred brethren. 
We cherish his memory in our hearts. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the brethren of the 
Windsor District for a very wonderful year and hope that 
any comments or suggestions I have made vdll be received 

in the spirit in which they were given.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON BENEVOLENCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. N. 
Allan, and on motion of the Deputy Grand Master, 
seconded by R.W. Bro. Allan, it was received and 
adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the P^o^'ince of Ontario, 

Mast Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

I am pleased to submit the report of the Committee on 
Benevolence for the year ended May 31, 1962. 

Details of the Grants for Benevolence are as follows: — 

261 Grants approved and authorized at the Annual 

Communication of Grand Lodge in July, 1961 _....$ 58,420.00 
Interim Grants during the year 3,150.00 



$ 61,570.00 
Less cancellations and reductions 3.090.00 



5 58,480.00 
Emergency Grants 229.00 



Total Grants _... - $ 58,709.00 

The usual meeting of your Committee prior to Grand 
Lodge was asrain held in our new Remetnbi'ance Memorial 
Building. The attendance was excellent and general ap- 
proval of this practice was expressed by all Members of the 
Committee. We found that it was helpful to have the records 
of the Supervisor of Benevolence readily available. Your 
Committee completed their duties feeling assured that all 
applications have received sympathetic and ge"nerous consider- 
ation. We also enjoyed the privilege of lunching •with our 
Grand Master. M.W. Bro. R. W. Treleaven, and our Grand 
Secretary, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon, at The Scottish Rite Club. 

Durine the year, the Committee on Benevolence has 
suffered the loss of three of its valued Members in the pass- 
ing of M.W. Bro. James P. Maher. R.W. Bro. George F, 
Olark and R.W. Bro. H. B. Coxon, To-day, we mourn their 
passing and honour their memory in paying tribute to the 
splendid ser\'ice so graciously given to our Craft and to this 
Benevolent work in particular. 

R.W. Bro. Geo. McQueen, our Supervisor of Benevolence, 
presented 249 applications for consideration; last year 259 



178 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL, COMMUNICATION 

applications were presented; 29 were new cases, being 11 
les's than last year. Some of these had received interim 
ffranits during the yeiar. 

Your Committee again recognizes that R.W. Bro. 
McQueen discharges his dulties in a faithful, capable and 
charitable manner, and they exitend their grateful thanks 
and appreciation to him for a job well done. We would 
again remind our Brethren that this Grand Jurisdiction ex- 
tends over the' whole of our Province. The co-operation 
and assistance of Lodge Officers and Members of Committees 
on Benevolence of the' individual Lodges can, therefore, 
assist our Supervisor of Benevolence tremendously. 

R.W. Bro. McQueen, in his report to your Committee, 
again emphasized the value of sympathetic guidance and 
assistance provided in many instances to those receiving 
grants, by Officers of the Lodge and by Committee Members. 
He was grateful too for the co-operation of those Brethren 
who regularly forwarded information "W'ith respect to in- 
dividual cases. Such co-operation is inltensely helpful to him 
in keeping his files up to date. , 

At our last Annual Communication, your Committee 
urged Lodge Officers to exercise the greatest possible care 
in completing Applications for Benevolence. We asked that 
full information be furnished. We were sorry, therefore, to 
reiad in R.W, Bro. McQueen's report to your Committee the 
following statement: "I regret ito again report that we have 
some Lodge? that have to be reminded of the importance and 
necessity of obtaining adequate informattion on the Appli- 
cation Forms and to see that they are returned promptly. 
This would indicate tbait there is a definite need of more 
intimate knowledge of the regulations as laid down in the 
Constitution, particularly witth regard to the Rules Respect- 
ing Benevolence." 

Last year your Committee urged individual Lodges to 
share in relieving the needs of those Members and dependents 
requiring assistance. We are gratified to state that most 
Lodges recogTiize their responsibility in this regard and are 
generous in their action. We again express the hope that 
very soon your Committee can report to Grand Lodge that aU 
Lodges, without exception, are sharing this admirable 
practice of providing assistance for our Brethren and their 
dependents when such is needed. 

An increase in the Old Age Security Pension during the 
year just past, as well as an increase in pensions to Disabled 
and Blind Persons and to those receiving Old Age Assistance, 
may have the effect of reducing requests for aid. We are, 
therefore, suggesting that a sum slightlv less than requested 
last year be set aside for Benevolence this year. The gradual 
reduction in the amount of money provided for Benevolence 



TORONTO, ONTARJO, 1962 17» 

is not because your Committee has been less generous in the 
consideration of the many oases, but rather because of Social 
Assistance plans provided by Governments. Hospital Care 
Insurance and Medical Aid now take the place of grants — 
often substantial ones — that were previously required from 
Benevolent Funds. 



A study of the more than 250 cases has influenced your 
Committee to conclude that this increase in the grants 
for what might be termed Social Assistance hais been helpful 
in another direction. More funds have been available to 
assdst the dependents of some of our younger Members when 
misfortune, such as an accident or the complete loss of health, 
comes to the father of the family; in which instance a 
mother may suddenly find herself entirely responsible for the 
welfare of these young persons. Our Supenasor of Benev- 
olence is intensely interested in these cases and, I may add, 
is most helpful in offering guidance and encouragement to 
such families as they face this new situation. A distinct 
effort is made to establish plans that will enable the children 
to complete their education. 



Your Committee has considered" all applications with the 
utmost care and recommends that the sum of $65,000.00 be 
provided for Benevolence in the year 1962-63. 



We wish also to record our appreciation for the foUowiivg' 
contribution and bequest received: 



Estate of Charles E. Sealey $14,000.00 

Contribution from the Toronto Lawn Bowl- 
ing Tournament 50.00 



We again recommend the continuance of our membership 
in the Masonic Relief Association of the United States and 
Canada. 



I have deeply appreciated the thoughtful guidance and 
assistance of all Members of the Committee and wish to 
express my sincere thanks to them. 

All of which is resx>ectfully and fraternally submitted. 

On behalf of the Committee, 

JAMES N. ALLAN, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
WARRANTS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. H. 
Gibson, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gibson, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Bl-ethren: 

It is a pleasure for your Committee on Warrants to 
present its report for the Masonic year, 1961, 1962. 

Applications for three Warrants have been received and 
it is gratifying to see this growth during the past year. 

Your Committee has carefully examined the petitions, 
books and records of these three lodges and, as these are 
in order and neatlv kept, we are happy to recommend that 
Warrants be issued to the three following lodges. 

(a) UNIVERSE LODGE, U.D., Markham, instituted No- 
vember 21 st, 1961. to be numbered 705 and placed in 
Toronto District "4". 

(b) THE DAVID T. CAMPBELL LODGE. U.D., Whitby, 
instituted January 18th, 1962, to be numbered 706 and 
placed in Ontario District. 

(c) EASTERN LODGE, U.D., Cornwall, instituted March 
27th. 1962, to be numbered 707 and placed in Eastern 

District. 

Your Committee further recommends that the Dispen- 
sation granted to Oakridge Lodge, U.D., meeting in the Byron 
Temple, London, instituted June 7th, 1962, be continued for 
another year. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 181 

A point of interest in examining the records of The 
David T. Campbell Lodge, U.D., is the fact that this lodge 
is being named after the late David T. Campbell, who, at his 
death some time ago, left a substantial Trust Fund to be 
administered by his own lodge, the income from which is 
being used to assist boys needing financial help to continue 
their education. We commend The David T. Campbell Lodge 
in providing this Memorial to this worthy Brother. 

On examining the records of these lodges your Com- 
mitte would make the following recommendations: 

(1) That all new lodges seek the assistance and guidance of 
the Grand Secretary's office in setting up their record 
books. This advice will be gladly given and will save 
time and will be of real assistance in setting up ade- 
quate permanent records which will be acceptable to 
Grand Lodge. 

(2) rt is further recommended that all Secretaries avail 
themselves of the guidance given in the Book of Consti- 
tution where recommended forms and phraseology are 
outlined, Avhich \\nll assist in the proper wording of the 
Minutes and other details of the Secretary's work. 

(3) Your Committee would also point out and again em- 
phasize the fact that only bound Minute Books are 
acceptable. There are a number of acceptable and very 
satisfact'orv loose leaf lederers available for Membership 
Records. Loose cards for this purpose are not acceptable. 

(4) This Committee would also like to reiterate the recom- 
mendation made by the committees of former years that 
cnlv well-skilled and experienced Masons should be 
entrusted with the work of Secretary of the lodge. That 
this has been done has very evidently been the case 
in the three new lodges applying for Warrants this year, 

(5) We would also recommend that copies of the Lodge 
Summonses should be retained and periodically bound. 
This is a simple and effective way of retaining accurate 
data in very accessable form regarding the activity of 
the lodge over the years. 

(6) We would also recommend that a capable and interest- 
ed Brother be appointed as Historian to record the 
hi.ctory of the lodge each year. This could be a most 
valuable contribution to his lodge as its history develops. 

(7) Your Committee believes that most lodges now provide 
fireproof receptacles for accommodating the Warrant, the 
Minutes, and the By-laws of each lodge. These increase 
in value with the years and, if they are destroyed, are 



182 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

most difficult, if not impossible, to replace. This recom- 
mendation is most impoitant. 

(8) We suggest that all lodges use columnar Treasurer's 
Record Books. For further information in this regard 
please contact the Grand Secretary's office. This type 
of record will greatly simplify the work of the Secre- 
tary and Treasurer in handling the monies of the lodge. 
We also strongly urge all Secretaries to start the 
Minutes of each meeting on a new page and to use 
marginal notes in writing up Minutes, as this simplifies 
reference to the back items in the Minute Books. 

Finally, your Committee wishes to congratulate these 
new lodges on the excellence of their records and to express 
to them our sincere good wishes for success, prosperity and 
happiness. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

W. H. GIBSON, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF ADVISORY COMMITTEE 
ON LODGE BUILDINGS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. Geo. 
T. Evans, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Evans, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master. Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

This 5th annual report of the Advisory Committee on 
Lodge Buildings covers a busy year with very satisfactory 
results. 

During the year nine lodges have sent in their plans 
for our examination and approval, making a toital of 72 since 
the inception of the Committee. A large number of the 
lodges with which we have been working in the past, have 
now had their Temples dedicated and tJie members are enjoy- 
ing the benefits of their new quarters. 

For the purpose of incoming Masters and District 
Deputies, we think it would be worth-while to re-state the 
purpose ajwi procedure of this Committee. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 18S 

In 1958 the Advisory Committee on Lodge Buildings was 
formed for the purpose of formulating requirements and 
regulations to govern the erection of new Masonic Temples, 
or the re-modelling of existing ones. Our particular aim is 
to see to the safety, comfort and convenience of iJie brethren. 
We give advice and assistance in the planning of the lodge 
rooms and furnish detailed instructions regarding fire 
escapes, stairs, toilet rooms, furnace rooms, lighting, ventil- 
ating and other matters pertaining to the construction of the 
building. 

We have prepared bulletins outlining the procedure to be 
followed in initiating a building scheme and detailing the 
various building and electrical requirements. We also have 
diagram plans for the guidance of the lodge showing typical 
layouts of comparatively small buildings of various sizes. 
These bulletins and diagrams can be had, free of charge, on 
application to the Grand Secretary. 

We -would repeat what we have stressed in previous 
reports thait- lodges contemplating new buildings or alter- 
ations to existing buildings should write to the Grand Secre- 
tary for our various bulletins BEFORE any move is made 
to prepare plans or set up financial arrangements. 

FIRE SAFETY 

In our report to Grand Lodge in 1960 we expressed con- 
tinual concern regarding the fire safety of our Masonic 
Temples throughout Ontario, In checking the plans for 
new or altered Masonic Temples the matters of proper exits 
and fire -safe consitruction are given close scrutiny. No plan 
is approved unless proper fire protection is provided. 

However, up to the present time we have dealt with 
only about 72 of the 617 lodges in the jurisdiction and it is 
in remaining halls and buildings housing 545 lodges where 
we fear there are many buildings which are potential fire 
traps. 

For the guidance and instruction of lodge officers in 
fire safetv. vour Commiittee has prepared a bulletin termed 
FIRE REGULATIONS No. 1. This bulletin contains ex- 
tracts from Fire Regulations prepared by the Office of the 
Ontario Fire Marshal with accompanying notes explaining 
tihe purpose of the regulations and giving some examples of 
loss of life which could have been prevented by proper 
safety measures. 

Your Committee realizes that we are entering a new 
field of acti\aty which will take careful handling and should 
be brought into effective operation in gradual stages. We 
will not ask Grand Lodge for power to enforce the Fire 
Regulations until the lodges have had an opportunity to study 



1S4 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

tihein and consider what steps might be necessary to elimin- 
ate the fire hazards in their Temples. 

As a starter, we recommend that Grand Lodge approve 
of the following steps: 

(1) To have the FIRE REGULATIONS BULLETIN No. 1 
printed or mimeographed and distributed to all the secretaries 
of all lodges and to each of the District Deputies. 

(2) That the District Deputies be instructed to carefully 
observ'e the fire hazards in Temples in their district and 
report their findings to the Grand Secretary not later than 
March 31st, 1963, using a questionnaire which we will prepare 
for the purpose. 

(3) That, if the District Deputy reports hazardous con- 
ditions, the Advisory Committee on Lodge Buildings be em- 
powered to ask for a more detailed report from the lodge 
officers and, if necessary, have the building inspected by a 
competent authority. 

(4) That, if conditions are particularly hazardous, the 
Ad\'isory Committee on Lodge Buildings be empowered to 
require that the lodge make such alterations as may be 
deemed necessary to remove the hazards. 



FINALLY. It is hoped that the issuing of the Fire 
Regulations Bulletin will be sufficient incentive to prompt 
all lodges to make a careful inspection of their premises and 
take steps on their own initiative to make their Temples 
fire-safe, and, if they are in rented premises, to persuade 
the owner to do so. 

If the foregoing recommendations do not have the de- 
sired effect your Committee will report to Grand Lodge at 
the next Annual Communication and recommend further 
steps to be taken to obtain satisfactory results. 

We congratulate the many lodges on their efforts to 
improve their Temples and wish them much pleasure and 
satisfaction in their endeavours. 

We solicit inquiries from all lodges contemplating build- 
ing and assure them of our constant desire to offer them 
every assistance. Needless to say, there is no charge for 
such services. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

GEO. T. EVANS. 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL RELATIONS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. Martyn it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

No requests for fraternal recognition have been received 
for the consideration of the Committee during the last 
Masonic year. Some three or four requests have been 
carried over from previous years but the Committee does 
not feel justified in making a recommendation at the present 
time because we feel that we do not have sufficient inform- 
ation about these petitioning Grand Lodges. 

During the year 1961, two new Grand Lodges were con- 
stituted. The first of these is the Grand Lodge of South 
Africa and it was formed on February 18, 1961. This body 
is made up exclusively of lodges formerly under the obedience 
of the Grand Lodge of the Netherlands. It had 94 lodges and 
5000 members when it was constituted. 

The second of these was the Grand Lodge of India, which 

was constituted on November 24, 1961. Preparations for the 
formation of this Grand Lodge have been going on for more 
than two years. All of the lodges under the obedience of the 
Grand Lodges of England, Ireland and Scotland, and situated 
in India and Ceylon, voted in favour, 96 from England, 6 
from Ireland and 41 from Scotland. The Consecration Cere- 
mony was conducted by the Most Worshipful, the Grand 
Master Mason of Scotland. The Institution Ceremony was 
conducted by the Right Worshipful, the Deputy Grand 
Master of Ireland, and their officers were installed under 
the direction of the Right Worshipful, the Deputy Grand 
Master of England. Our Grand Lodge was represented at 
these ceremonies by M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, Past Grand 
Master. 

Last year this Committee included two paragraphs in 
their report dealing with the Masonic situation in Cuba as it 
was report-ed to the Grand Masters' Conference in Washing- 
ton in 1960. This situation is just as confused now as it was 
then. We can only hope the picture will clear itself and that 
satisfactory- conditions will return to cur Cuban Brethren. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 

M.W. Bro. H. L. Martyn, Chairman, presented 
this report and read the Foreword to the Reviews. 
The Deputy Grand Master then moved, seconded by 
M.W. Bro. Mai-tyn, that the report be received and 
adopted. The motion was carried. 

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE 
ON REGALIA 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Chairaian, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by M.W. Bro. ISIartyn, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

This Special Committee, appointed by Most Worshipful 
Brother Wardley in 1944, reported extensively on matters of 
regalia, forms and lodge records for the three years after its 
formation. Following their report in 1947, Section 262 of the 
Book of Constitution was amended to implement their recom- 
mendations. It was considered that the work of the Com- 
mittee was practically completed when this was done. 

Recently it has been drawn to the attention of the 
Committee that while Section 143 of the Book of Consti- 
tution permits a lodge to have an Assistant Secretary as 
one of the officers. Section 262 does not make a provision 
for a jewel for that officer. It is recommended that a suit- 
able jewel be designated for this office and that steps be 
taken to amend the Constitution accordingly. 

It is suggested that the Worshipful Masters of all 
lodges should note carefully the regalia requirements that 
are laid down bv Section 262 insofar as these requirements 
apply to the individual lodge. When re\-ision was made in 
1947 it was made to get some uniformity in the regalia that 
we use. At the same time it was intended that Masonic 
regalia should be in keeping with the dignity of the Order. 
The Master Mason's apron was the specific piece of regalia 
that needed to be upgraded. The Constitution calls for two 
metallic, silver-finished chain tassels. "The tassels them- 
selves shall each be composed of a bar top from which are 
soispended sev^n separate chains.*' iSome' V)dges have 



TOR0^fTO. ONTARIO, 1%2 187 

recently been proNiding the cheaper solid block imitation 
chain tassel which is definitely not what the Constitution 
calls for. It is expected that this irregTilarity \vill be cor- 
rected in all cases. The Master Mason is entitled to the 
Master Mason's apron. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

HARRY L. MARTYN, 

Chairman. 

REPORT OF THE CX)MMnTEE ON 
CONSTITUTION AND LAWS 

This report was presented by M.W. Bro. T. H. 
Simpson, Chairman, and on motion of M. W. Bro. 
Simpson, seconded by M.W. Bro. J. A. Hearn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Committee on Constitution and Laws hegs leave to 
report as follows: 

PART I 

(1) Most Worshipful Bro. H. L. Martyn has given notice 
of a -motion to be brought before you. The motion is in- 
tended to provide for a suitable jewel for the Assistant 
Secretary of a lodge where a lodge has an Assistant Secre- 
tary. Many lodges now have an Assistant Secretary 
under Section 143 but there is no provision in Section 262 
for a jewel for the holder of this office. The proposed 
motion is that Section 262 of the Constitution be amended 
as follows: — 

"In that portion relating to jewels of office for 
the Worshipful Masters and Officers of a Craft 
Lodge, after the line dealing \\'ith the 'jewels' for 
the Secretary therein, add 'Assistant Secretary'' — 
The crossed pens with the word 'Assistanf added 
thereon." 

There is no constitutional objection to this Notice of 
Motion by Most Worshipful Bro. Martyn. 

PART II 

This part of the Report deals with several requests 
which have come before the Committee and which will be 



188 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

presented to you to provide for concurrent jurisdiction to be! 
granted to certain lodges and these will be dealt with in 
separate paragraphs. 

(1) A request comes from Goodwood Lodge, No. 159, 
Richmond, in the Ottawa District. The proposal is that 
Goodwood Lodge, No. 159, should be granted concurrent 
jurisdiction with the various lodges in the City of Ottawa. 
All of the Ottawa lodges have consented to the proposal 
with the exception of the Lodge of Fidelity, No. 231, which 
is unfavorable provisionally. Richmond is 18 miles from the 
centre of Ottawa. Hazeldean Lodge, No. 517, at Hazeldean, 
which is closer to Ottawa, about 14 miles, has not sought 
concurrent jurisdiction. However, since the great majority 
of the lodges in Ottawa are favorable your Committee recom- 
mends that the request be granted. 

(2) Campbell Lodge, No. 603, Campbellville, has petitioned 
for concurrent jurisdiction with the Burlington Lodges, of 
which there are two, and St. Clair Lodge, No. 135, Milton, 
and Waterdown Lodge, No. 357, at Millgrove. Waterdown 
Lodge, however, does not agree to bringing St. Clair Lodge, 
No. 135, at Milton, into it. St. Clair Lodge on the other 
hand is nearer to Campbell Lodge than is Waterdown Lodge. 
At the present time St. Clair Lodge, which is about 2 miles 
soutii of Milton on Highway Number 25, is now in the Town 
of Oakville and, therefore, has acquired concurrent jurisdic- 
tion with the tw'io Oakville Lodges which already have con- 
current jurisdiction with Burlington and Port Credit. Under 
Section 186 the situation is becoming somewhat complicated, 
since Oakville Lodges have concurrent jurisdiction with the 
three lodges in Port Credit which have the same rights with 
respect to the Toronto Lodges and this will make for a 
great network of lodges all having concurrent jurisdiction. 
Our Constitution was not originally designed to meet that 
sort of situation. Your Committee feels that such a situ- 
ation should not be encouraged because it could eventually 
lead to province-wide jurisdiction for all lodges. Your Com- 
mittee, therefore, recommends that Campbell Lodge, No. 
603, Campbellville, be granted concurrent jurisdiction with 
the lodges in Oakville and Burlington with respect only to 
those areas which they all, combined, originally enjoyed 
before the Burlington Lodges were taken into the Hamilton 
area and the Oakville Lodges were granted concurrent 
jurisdiction, in 1957, with the lodges in Burlington and Port 
Credit. In other words, such concurrent jurisdiction ^vill 
not extend to include what is now known as the Metropolitan 
Toronto area and the Hamilton area. 

(3) This is an application by Niagara Lodge, No. 2, of 
Niagara-on-the-Lake for concurrent jurisdiction with the 
lodges in the City of St. Catharines. Ivy Lodge, No. 115, 
at Beamsville, at the present time shares concurrent jurisdic- 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 189 

tion with the St. Catharines Lodges, Seymour Lodge, No. 
277, and Grantham Lodge, No. 697, at Port Dalhousie and 
Adanac Lodge, No. 614, at Merritton. The question arises 
whether Niagara Lodge, No. 2, should by its present action 
obtain concurrent jurisdiction as far west as Beamsville and 
vice versa. Ivy Lodge, No. 115, did not approve but there 
is nothing to show whether they were consulted. In 1947 
Niagara Lodge, No. 2, was given concurrent jurisdiction 
with the Niagara Falls Lodges, also Stamford Lodge, No. 
626, Stamford, and King Edward VII Lodge, No. 471, at 
Chippawa. The granting of this application would give 
Niagara Lodge a very wide-spread jurisdiction, resulting in 
a situation much similar to that with respect to Campbell 
Lodge, No. 603, at Campbellville. Your Committee, after 
considering this matter carefully, feels that the application 
should be granted but only to the extent that the wording 
therein provides for, namely, that Niagara Lodge, No. 2, should 
have concurrent jurisdiction with the St. Catharines Lodges 
only, and should not have in addition thereto any jurisdiction 
from any concurrent jurisdiction which these other lodges 
now enjoy. This will to some extent avoid a good deal of the 
confusion that might otherwise arise. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

T. H. SIMPSON, 

Chairman. 



DISPOSAL OF NOTICE OF MOTION 

In accordance with notice duly given, ]\I.W. Bro. 
H. L. Marty n moved, seconded by M.W. Bro. J. A. 
Hearn, that the Constitution of Grand Lodge be 
amended as follows: 



Section 262. In that portion relating to Jewels of 
Office for the Worshipful Master and Officers 
of a Craft Lodge, after the line dealing with 
the jewel for the Secretary, add 'Assistant 
Secretary — The Crossed Pens with the word 
Assistant added thereon.' 



The amendment was adopted unanimously. 



190 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA AJ^NUAL COMMUNICATION 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
FRATERNAL DEAD 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. D. J. 
Gunn, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gunn, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

One of the joys of attending the Annual Communication 
of Grand Lodge is the renewing of friendships with brethren 
whom we see but seldom. Conversely, we are saddened when 
we think of those known to us whose hands we will never 
clasp again and whose familiar voices are forever stilled. 
It is no formal tribute' thalb we pay each year to those of our 
number who will be with us no more. The development of a 
Mason who becomes a Grand Lodge Officer is the result of 
years of seiMce to the Craft. No man can have such an 
experience ^vithoult increasing his mental capacities and add- 
ing to his spiritual awareness of man's character and his 
relations both with the Supreme Being and with his fellow 
men. 

UnfortunaJtely, not every man who joins a Masonic 
Lodge ■will make a worthwhile contribution to the Craft. 
There are some who seem immune to the eternal verities 
contained in the symbols and allegories of our ritual and who 
fail to catch the true Masonic spirit. Others who have an 
appreciation of its worth and some understanding of its 
teachings are prevenifced by urgent claims of home, business, 
church or other interests from attending lodge as often as 
they vrould like to do or from becoming officers in their 
lodges. The bed rock of Masonry, however, is the largest 
•group of all — the many thousands of devoted men who have 
grasped the mission of Freemasonry, who realize their 
responsibility and opportunity of playing their own part in 
irtts maintenance and advancement. From this group come 
the officers, the Masters and Past Masters and finally, after 
many years of service and experience, the Grand Lodge 
Officers. 

In Grand Lodge in recent years, our losses have been 
very great. Within a shoilb time six of our Past Grand 
Masters have gone from among us, and our Grand East has 
been sadly depleted by the death of some of the most dis- 
tinguished of our number. Since our last Annual Communi- 
cation, M.W. Bro. James Patterson Maher has passed to -die 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 191 

Grand Lodge Above and the record of his outstanding: service 
to tihe Craft will not soon be forgotten. Doubtless the M.W. 
the Grand Master vAW pay suitable tribute to our late brother 
in his Address to Grand Lodge. The Chairman of this Com- 
mittee who had the privilege of knowing the late M.W. Bro. 
Maher for nearly forty years would like to record his ap- 
preciation of the many fine qualities of a great Mason who 
will be long remembered, in particular for his leadership as 
chairman of the special committee which raised $250,0CK).OO 
towards food parcels for Britain in the time of her need. The 
success of the celebration of our one hundredth anniversary 
in 1955 was due in no small measure to his untiring efforts. 

Among the widely known brethren who have gone from 
their earthly labours were R.W. Bro. Geo. F. Clark, a member 
of the Board of General Purposes for many years, and R.W. 
Bro. Hector E. Wilson, the Grand Senior Warden in 1960-61. 
We mourn the passing of these and many other fine men who 
rendered great service to the Craft in their day and gener- 
ation. 

As we pay our last tribute of resi)ect to departed merit, 
we think not only of those who gave so freely of their time 
and talents to the cause of Freemasonry but in particular of 
those who were our personal friends and whose comradeship 
we sorely miss. As always in acknowledging our debt to 
them, we are again reminded of the unfinished and never 
ending mission of Freemasonrj', and we are grateful that 
many fine young men are taking up the task they had to 
leave behind when they slipped beyond our mortal ken. 

In paying our last farewell to "those whom we have 
loved long since and lost awhile", let us conclude by recalling 
to our minds the familiar words of our ritual which we have 
heard so often at the graveside of a departed brother. 

"While we sorrow for our loss, let us lift up hearts of 
thanksgiving for a life well spent, for work well done; and 
let us humbly pray that we may be given grace and strength 
and vinsdom to enable us to perform our duty in the pathway 
of life's service." 

"By the light of the Divine countenance we shall then 
pass without fear through the Valley of the Shadow, and at 
last shall re<'eive the reward of true virtue, and acquire the 
possession of an immortal inheritance. For death cannot keep 
us from the face of God, Whose strong grip wall free us and 
lift us out of shadows into the Light that cannot die." 

With gratitoide to the Great Architect of the Universe 
for their lives and example, we remember these departed 
brethren.

202 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

The thanks of this Committee is exteiwied to the Grand 
Secretary, the District Deputy Grand Masters, and all others 
who have assisted in supplying: the necessary information. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

DONALD J. GUNN, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
GRIEVANCES AND APPEALS 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. M. C. 
Hooper, Chairman. Oii motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Hooper, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Grievances and Appeals submits 
its report to the 1962 Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge in the following parts: 

1. HAMMOND LODGE, No. 327, versus W. BRO. ALVIN 
V. ESSELTINE. 

Proceedings of this Grand Lodge for the year 1961 
record (p. 246) that W. Bro. Alvin V. Esseltine was found 
by the auditor of Hammond Lodge. No. 327, to be short in 
his accounts as Treasurer in the amount of $578.44. A 
charge of theft by conversion of lodge funds was laid and 
accepted and a trial in the lodge was held after due notice 
to the accused brother who failed to attend. 

The lodge found W. Bro. Esseltine guilty and ordered 
his indefinte suspension with the recommendation of expul- 
sion. 

Grand Lodge, in July, 1961, adopted the recommendation 
of this Committee, directed that W. Bro. Alvin V. Esseltine 
be notified to appear at this Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge to show cause why he should not be expelled. He has 
been so notified but he has not appeared. 

Your Committee, therefore, recommends that W. Bro. 
Alvin V. Esseltine be expelled. 



TORO>rrO, ONTARIO, 1962 203 

2. DORIC LODGE, No. 382, versus BRO. SYDNEY A. 
McCRACKEN. 

The earlier record of this case appears in the Proceed- 
ings of this Grand Lodge for 1961 at page 247. It is there 
stated that Bro. Sydney A. McCracken. a member of Doric 
Lodge, No. 382, having been charged with conversion of 
money from other individuals to his own use without colour 
of right, was convicted in the Magistrate's Court in Hamilton 
on six such charges and was sentenced to a term in gaol. 

Proceedings charging unmasonic conduct were taken in 
Doric Lodge which found Bro. McCracken guilty of a 
Masonic offence as charged and resolved that he be sus- 
pended indefinitely. 

This Grand Lodge, at its Annual Communication in 1961, 
adopted the report of this Committee confirming the sus- 
pension of Bro. Sydney A. McCracken and directed that he 
be notified to appear at this Annual Communication of Grand 
Lodge to show cause why he should not be expelled. He has 
been so notified. He has not appeared. 

Your Committee, therefore, recommends that Bro. 
Sydney A. McCracken be expelled. 

3. TUSCAN LODGE, No. 541, versus W. BRO. WILLIAM 
H. HARRIS. 

This case was previously reported in the Proceedings 
of Grand Lodge for 1961 at p. 248. A charge, laid in Tuscan 
Lodge, No. 541, against W. Bro. William H. Harris, alleging 
acts of adultery with the wife of another member of the 
lodge, was accepted and referred to a Commission appointed 
by the Grand Master. 

The accused brother appeared at the hearing, when 
evidence of the alleged offences was adduced and was un- 
challenged. 

The Commission found W. Bro. Harris guilty of un- 
masonic conduct under Rule 1. (s). suspended him from 
Masonry and recommended his expulsion. The report was 
concurred in by this Committee and was adopted by Grand 
Lodge one year ago. Grand Lodge, thereupon actinsr on the 
recommendation of this Committee, directed that W. Bro. 
Harris be notified to appear at this Annual Communication 
to show cause why he should not be expelled, and suspension 
was continued in the meantime. He has been so notified. 
He has not appeared. 

Your Committee, therefore, recommends that W. Bro. 
William H. Harris be expelled. 



204 GRAND LODOE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

4. WALES LODGE, No. 458, versus BRO. HOWARD J. 
ROSE. 

A charge was laid in Wales Lodge, No. 458, against its 
member, Bro. Howard J. Rose, in that he obtained a loan 
of $900.0€ by "misstating the case" (i.e. by fraud) which 
loan has not been repaid. 

A trial was held by the lodge on notice to the accused 
who failed to attend. Bro. Rose was represented in interest 
at the trial by a Past Master who accepted that duty at the 
request of the Worshipful Master. From the statements made 
by the complainant it appears that the accused was a frequent 
borrower from his brethren with a negligible record of re- 
payment. One of the brethren also referred to a case said to 
be pending in the Courts but this item had not been included 
in the charge in Wales Lodge. 

On successive ballots the lodge found Bro. Rose guilty 
of the charge and ordered his indefinite suspension. There 
was no recommendation to Grand Lodge that he be expelled. 

This Committee, having carefully reviewed the proceed- 
ings in the lodge and the evidence there adduced, is unable 
to justify a conviction on the charge as laid without more 
explicit evidence of false pretences. It finds, however, that 
the record contains allusions to other financial dealings 
which, if properly charged and proved, would constitute a 
serious Masonic offence. 

This Committee feels that the suspension may be justir_ 
fied on the basis of the facts alluded to in the proceedings 
if properly charged and proved. It, accordingly, recom- 
mends that the case be referred back to the lodge with the 
direction that the charge be expanded to include matters said 
to have been before the Courts and that direct testimony 
be adduced touching known fraudulent dealings of the ac- 
cused and that the lodge give careful attention to its pro- 
cedure as specified in the rules of this Grand Lodge. 

In the meantime we recommend that the conviction and 
sentence be allowed to stand until the next Annual Com- 
munication of this Grand Lodge. 

5. DEFENDERS LODGE, No. 590, versus BRO. T. A. 
NORDMAN. 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid in Defenders 
Lodge, No. 590. against Bro. Toino Aarre Nordman in that 
he, between September 1, 1959, and June 9, 1960, at the 
Municipality of Metropolitan Toronto and elsewhere, did 
unlawfully conspire to defraud metnbers of the public by 
fraudulent means. 

The lodge held a trial in the Masonic Temple in Ottawa 
on April 18. 1962. Bro. Nordman, who was notified by 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 205 

registered mail under Rule 5. (undelivered), did not attend 
but was represented at the trial by a brother who had been 
one of his sponsors. 

The evidence in the trial consisted of a Certificate of 
Conviction which indicates that a trial of the accused with 
others charg-ed with t'he same offence took place at sittings 
of the Court of General Sessions of the Peace at the City 
of Toronto extending over 20 days in September and Oct- 
ober, 1961, "ordered and adjudged" to serve a term of three 
months in the Ontario Reformatory. 

The lodge found Bro. T. A. Nordman guilty of unmasonic 
conduct and directed his indefinite suspension with a recom- 
mendation for expulsion from the Order. 

Following the practice adopted by this Committee with 
the approval of Grand Lodge in certain cases previously 
decided, where trial on the actual evidence of the commission 
of the offence is not presented to the Masonic tribunal, but 
where guilt has been established beyond question, either by 
the admission of the accused or by the conviction or finding 
of a Court of competent jurisdiction, this Committee recom- 
mends that the Grand Master and the Grand Lodge, by 
virtue of the inherent power and jurisdiction vested in them, 
do confirm suspension of Bro. T. A. Nordman forthwith and 
further recommends that he be notified to appear at the 
next Annual Communication of this Grand Lodge to show 
cause why he should not be expelled, and that in the mean- 
time the suspension be continued. 

7. EAST GATE LODGE, No. 693, versus BRO. LAW- 
RENCE EDGAR POTTS. 

A charge of unmasonic conduct was laid against Bro. 
Lawrence Edgar Potts under Rule 1. (s), and was accepted 
by the lodge which requested that a Commission be appoint- 
ed by the Grand Master to try the case. 

The Grand Master appointed a Commission consisting 
of W Bro Llovd J. Tomlinson, V.W. Bro. Leighton S. 
Walker and R.W. Bro. Willard M. Gordon, to hear and 
determine the charge. The Commission found that the 
affirmative evidence of the complainant was not corrobor- 
ated in anv way and of itself was not convincing. The ac- 
cused attended the trial and emphatically denied the charge. 

The report of the Commission was that no charge of 
unmasonic conduct had been proved. 

This Committee accepts the finding of the Commission 
and recommends that the charge be dismissed as not proved. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

M. CLEEVE HOOPER, 

Chairman.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
PRINTING AND SUPPLIES 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. J. B. 
Sainsbury, Chairman and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Sainsbury, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A. F. & A. M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Bretihren: 

Your Ck)mniittee on Printing- and Supplies, composed of 
Rt. Wor. Bros, H. S. Johnston. J. O'Donovan, Lyndsy Brown, 
A. B, Barton. J. L. MacKinnon, Harry Taylor and the Chair- 
man., begs leave to submit the report of expenditures on 
printdng and supplies for the year ended May 31st, 1&62, as 
follows: 

Constitutions for re-sale $ 2,840.00 

Manuals and Works for re-sale 6,334.94 

Funeral Services for re-sale 571.65 

Installation! Ceremonies for re-sale 305.25 

Proceedings and Postage 4,639.13 

Grand Lodge Bulletins (3 issues and postage) 4,126.67 
Printed forms, circulai^, records, office 

stationery and supplies 2,689.36 

Syllabus for Masonic Education (2 issues) .... 78.55 

Fraternal Reviews (2,900) 865.25 

Preliminary Reports (3,500) 1,027.30 

$ 23,478.10 



TTie^e is a small increase in the total of expenditures re- 
viewed by this Committee over the amount reported for the 
previous year. The substantial cost of Manuals and Works 
will be^ recovered over the next year or two as these are 
requisitioned by tihe various Lodges in the Grand Jurisdiction. 
There is a reduction of $1,313. in the expenditure for Grand 
Lodge Bulletins which, added to the amount of $3,150, re- 
quired' in the previous period for a five years' supply of 
Master Mason Certificates, largely offsets' tihe other increases 
recorded in this report. The printing of the Preliminary 
Re|K)rts was again increased to meet the requirements of the 
Brethren. 

The Chairmen of the various Committees are to be com- 
mended for their prompt action in completing their reports 
as soon as the necessary information was available. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 20T 

This Committee wishes ag'ain to express appreciation 
for the quick and efficient' sei*vice given so willingly by our 
Grand Secretary and his staff. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
MASONIC EDUCATION 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. K. 
Bailey, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Bailey it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. and A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Committee on Education for the year 1961-62 com- 
posed of M.W. Bros. W. L. Wright. H. L. Martyn; R.W. 
Bros. E. G. Dixon. B. B. Foster, Wellington Smith, W. M. 
Prentice, A. J. Anderson. R. F. Brown. G. H. Weston, F, P. 
Lowry, G. J. Patterson, H. G. Bates, T. J. Purvis, G. S. 
Matthias, R. A. Stewart, C. B. Rycroft and W. K. Bailey as 
Chairman, begs to present its report to the One Hundred and 
Sefventh Annual Communication of Grand Lodge. 

During the year five communications were distributed to 
the members of the Committee and to th6 District Deputy 
Grand Masters and through them to the Sui>ervisors and 
Lodge Chairmen of Masonic Education. We are indebted to 
M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, P.G.M. for the composition of one 
of the communications, "The Centrality of the Holy Bible 
in Daily Living" and to R.W. Bros. F. P. Lowry and H. G. 
Bates for the preparation of the' two issues of the "Syllabus 
of Instruction." The latter were printed and distributed 
through the courtesy of the Grand Secretary's office directly 
to the Lodge Secretaries. Judging from the Lodge reports 
to the District Deputy Grand Masters there are all too many 
instances in which these communications are not being placed 
in the hands of the Lodge Chairmen and interested brethren. 

Perhaps we ought to feel amply rewarded for our time 
and effort if at least four hundred Lodges make some use of 
the articles and syllabus. In any general programme^ it is 
next to impossible to anticipate the needs of any particular 
Lodge or District. Be^ assured that the Committee on Mas- 
onic Education is receptive to suggestions for improving the 
service which we endeavour to render to the Lodges. Many 



208 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

inquiries have been made from individuals and Lodg-es, It 
is encouraging to be asked to do this becavise we know that 
the material is filling a specific need and is likely to be used 
to good advantage. 

The Committee would like to express appreciation to the 
District Deputy Grand Masters, Supervisors and all the 
Brethren who have assisted in Masonic Education pro- 
grammes this past year. We would respectfully recommend, 
as has been suggested in the reports of many of the District 
Deputy Grand Masters, that provision should be made for 
more continuity from year to year in the personnel of the 
District and Lodge Committees on Masonic Education. 

Outlines and brochures of Masonic Education programmes 
throughout the Districts are welcomed by our Committee. It 
is our earnest endeavour to give every assistance to the 
primary and essential work being done in the Lodges and 
the Districts. From Prince Edward District the District 
Deputy Grand Master reports that a visitations' schedule 
was drawn up whereby one half of the Lodges in the District 
were requested to act as hosts to the other Lodges. The 
guest Lodges in turn were designated to present a pro- 
gramme of Masonic Education using as resource material the 
Proceedings of Grand Lodge, History of Grand Lodge, Book 
of Constitution and Manual for Instructors and Students, 
commencing with a short talk at the 6.30 p.m. banquet hour. 
The requests were faithfully fulfilled, the meetings were 
well attended and the brethren expressed themselves as well 
rewarded. Eastern District Supervisor is to be highly com- 
mended for organizing a very comprehensive programme of 
Training in Masonic Education for Wtorshipful Masters, 
Wardens, Lodge Chairmen and Master Masons for presen- 
tation next November. 

The Committee is greatly indebted to M.W. Bro. H. L. 
Martyn, Custodian of the Work and member of our Committee^ 
in advancing the cause of Masonic Education through the 
regional meetings with the District Deputy Grand Masters 
in August and September. As a past Chairman of this 
Committee, M.W. Bro. Martyn was in a position to offer 
valuable suggestions and to stress the importance of a con- 
tinuing programme of instruction and enlightenment for 
Worshipful Masters, the officers and the members. 

It is quite unlikely that many Worshipful Masters and 
Wardens, other than through Past Masters' and /or Wardens' 
Associations, have had any formal instruction on how to 
employ and instruct their brethren in Masonry. This most 
important duty should be indelibly printed upon the hearts 
and minds of all Worsihipful Masters. Its implementation, 
not only in esoteric teachings of the Craft, but also in the 
many teachings of the Order of which the Ritual makes no 
mention or only oblique reference at the most, should also 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 209 

be pressed home. Otherwise we can hardly find fault with 
the brethren who are often frank in saying that they find 
the never-ending succession of degree work very dull, tire- 
some and monotonous. In focusing our programme of Masonic 
Education towarc-ls the newer members, we have all too often 
neglected to provide for the somewhat specialized and specific 
instruction and information necessary to the Worshipful 
Masters and Wardens as they assume the duties and obli- 
gations of the higheist office within the gift of their brethren. 

Certainly it is not necessary or mandatory that the 
Master himself should do all the* instructing. Mosit Lodges 
have extremely know^ledgeable Past Masters and brethren, 
who, under the guidance of the Education Committee and 
with the encouragement and support of the Worshipful 
Master, can assist with this activity. At least these brethren 
can be eTicouraged to extend their researches and given op- 
portunity to pass their findings along to others. 

In recent years in an endeavour to create and maintain 
interest in ritual work, Worshipful Masters are enlisting 
the assistance of the members. It does not necessarily follow 
that because a brother has a good memory that he is a good 
ritualist. We are obligated to these brethren to provide 
instruction for them on how to prepare and deliver the work. 
It is quite as important to the candidate and the members 
how ritual is given as what is recited. We ought not to 
assume that because a brother has heard certain parts of 
the ritual many times over and can memorize easily, that he 
comprehends the import of the charge and can present it 
meaningfully and impressively to the candidate. 

Many men, sensing the; challenge, satisfaction and en- 
lightenment that Masons seem to get out of their Masonry, 
make application hoping to partake of the fruits of Masonry, 
but unfortunately all too often many become disillusioned. 
There appears to be no fruit for them.. They forget that all 
fruit is growTi from seed and therefore the fruit of Masonry 
has had to develop from a seed or germ, of Masonry, carefully 
planted and delicately nurtured to a well-informed and 
practising Mason. 

In the ceremonies of making a Mason, we do n<>t attempt 
to do more than indicate the pathway to Masonic knowledge 
and to lay the foundation for the Masonic edifice. The brother 
naust complete the structure or pursue the journey for him- 
self by reflection, by reading, by study, by action. 

Our ceremonies and symbols, beautiful as they are and 
t^eaching valuable lessons of industry, morality and religion, 
must never be allow^ed to be mistaken for the lessons to be 
taught and caught. In other words they mxist never become 
idols before which we kneel, but rather sign posts pointing 



210 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

the good life for which we, as creatures of the Great Archi- 
tect, oug-ht always to strive. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

W. K. BAILEY. 

Chairman.

212 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL C50MMUNICATI0N 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE 
CONDITION OF MASONRY 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. B. B. 
Foster. Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Foster, it was 
received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is my privilege, on behalf of the Committee, to present 
the report on the Condition of Masonry in this Grand Jurisdic- 
tion at this One Hundred and Seventh Communication of 
Grand Lodge, 

All District Deputy Ma,sters are unanimous in their 
declaration tha/t they appreciate their election to office and 
the subsequent experience gained while filling that office. 
They are also emphatic in stating that the Disltrict Secre- 
taries fill a most useful role in relieving them of essential 
but repetitive work, thus freeing them to deal with problems 
requiring their personal attention. 

The report of this Committee is dependent upon the 
repH>rtts of the District Deputy Grand Masters. The co- 
operation of these representatives in getting their sum- 
maries in on time is worthy of recognition and congratu- 
lations. It is also indicative of the zeal and devotion to duty 
with which they appear to have discharged their obligations 
during the past year. Tlie individual problems of each 
Lodge seem to have had personal consideration by the DistricJt 
Deputy. 

All books and records have been kept in approved form, 
and the Secretaries and Treasurers of the Lodges should 
receive the approbation of all members. One book, however, 
•that receives no mention, and which your Chairman considers 
of sufficient importance to be mentioned here, is one con- 
taining the history of a Lodge. It is admitted that the 
minute book includes the account of the happenings in a 
Lodge room, but does it encompass the complete record? 
Does it contain the little details that show the reasons for 
the_ success of the Lodge, and something of the character 
of its members ? We suggest thait Lodges without an active 
historian select one because the little items of today become 
the modifiers of history tomorrow. 

Most reports state that the ritualistic work continues 
to be of a high standard. The excellent calibre of the Officers 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 ZU 

responsible is reflected by the remark of the District Deputy 
Grand Master of Wellington District, who observed. "It is 
evident that the Worshipful Masters and Officers were sincere 
in their work and anxious to pass on to the candidates their 
faith in Masonry and the conviction 'that only the best in 
any man is good enough." Lodges of Instruction are still 
being held in some Districts and these will inevitably contri- 
bulte to uniformity in the work. 

From the reports received, it would appear that this 
year has been quite successful. The number of Lodges 
has increased by five. This year we welcome the 
following: Universe in Markham, David T. Campbell in Whitby, 
Eastern in Cornwall, and Oakridge in London. Those temples 
that have been constructed in the past year have been dedi- 
cated; several others are in the process of being built, while 
many of the older ones are being redecorated. These actions 
are indicative of the fact that Masonry is becoming more 
aware of the need for buildings and furnishings commensur- 
ate with the dignity and importance of the Craft. 

In the reports of this Committee in past years, many 
references have been made to the problem of Lodges with 
large memberships. Our Deputy Grand Master, R.W. Bro. 
J. A. In-ine. suggested in the 1961 report of the Committee 
on Warrants that fifty or more Lodges might be instituted 
in the immediate future. This suggested increase has been 
thought impossible since it would require added working 
space. This is perhaps a governing factor but your Com- 
mittee presents the follo\\ang as a partial solution: that, 
where the number of Lodge rooms is limited, the Lodges 
concerned reduce the number of their meetings on an equi- 
table basis in order to provide space for new Lodges. 

Many reports list the names of distinguished Brethren 
who, after long and faithful sei^ice, have passed to the 
Grand Lodge Above. Accompanying each name is a warm 
personal tribute to his accomplishments. Thus we recognize 
the contribution these leaders have made to the Craft. Yoxir 
Committee commends those Lodges which hold Merruorial 
Services for those servants of the Craft who have departed- 

The Past Masters', Officers', and Wardens' Associations 
continue to fire the spirit and action of the Districts in which 
they function. They are a unifying force, and they present 
an avenue through which flows an ever increasing stream 
of information. They also bring together the active leaders 
of a District to whom accrue the dividends of fello\\-ship 
and the satisfaction of working together for the welfare of 
the Craft. 

For the third year in succession this Grand Lodge has 
been called ui>on, by the most siolemn admonition, to consider 
life's uncenfrainty. The passing of M.W. Bro. J. P- Maher 



214 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

was a further blow to those gallant leaders who have given 
so much of themselves to the maintenance and direction of 
the Craft in (this Grand Jurisdiction. Those Masons who were 
so proud of the minutely detailed arrangements for our 
Centennial, and who were thrilled by its success, feel a 
particular sense of loss. We are certain itihat his unselfish 
service will continue tx) influence the welfare of this Grand 
Lodge in the future as it has in the past. Two valued mem- 
bers of the Board of General Purposes also taken from us 
were R.W. Bros. G. F. Clark and H, B. Coxon. Their talents 
were many and tlhis Grand Lodge benefitted directly from the 
exercise of those talents. All of ttihem always acted as God 
requires — ^they dealt justly, they loved mercy, and they 
walked humbly with their God. 

All the District Deputy Grand Masters express their 
satisfaction when they are called upon to recognize, on behalf 
of Grand Lodge, the veterans of our Craft by presen- 
tation of jewels and pins. We salute our senior members for 
their past contributions and congratulate the increasingly 
larger number that is conttdnuing to be active though advanc- 
ing in years. 

Your Committee is pleased to recognize the good work 
carried on by the Blood Donors' Committee. In this endeavour 
the Mason displays his greatest regard for his fellowman. 
Many Masons make contributions, but do not report it to the 
Lodge Chairman; hence the total recorded must be consider- 
ed a minimum. 

Our dependence upon Divine guidance is receiving con- 
tinued emphasis. District Divine Services and local ^ Lodge 
Services are being held in most areas. Each District has 
its Chaplain, and every report speaks enthusiastically of the 
leadership given in this most important phase of Masonic 
life. Your Committee joins with all Masons of this Grand 
Jurisdidtion in expressing our gratitude to the District 
Chaplains for adding these Masonic duties to their own 
religious labours. R.W. Bro. Canon A. J. Anderson, the 
Grand Chaplain, has been most active at dedications. Divine 
Services and after dinner speeches. From a study of the 
reports of the last few years, it would appear that more and 
more Masons are learning to appreciate the privilege of 
worshipping together in His House. 

No one can estimate the total impact of one personality 
on a group. All reports from Districts where the Most 
Worshipful the Grand Master has visited indicate that M.W. 
Bro. R. W. Treleaven has been able to impart his happy and 
purposeful disposition to his brethren. The reports attest 
to his ability to lead the members of this Grand Lodge to a 
deeper appreciation of Masonic precepts and to a realization 
of their responsibility to incorporate these precepts into 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 215 

their lives. Your Committee expresses the unanimous hope af 
all Masons that the Great Architect of the Universe will 
continue to bless our Grand Master with health and vigour 
to carry on his imi)ortant task. 

Masonic Education remains, as alw»,ys, a fundamental 
acti^'^ty of our Lodges. E<aoh District ha.s had a Sux)ervisK>r 
to coordinate the work this year. It appears that 1961-2 
has been a very successful year. R.W. Bro. W. K. Bailey, 
Chairman of the Committee on Masonic Education, has pre- 
sented many workable ideas to the District Depulty Grand 
Masters for furthering the programme. The real success of 
the endeavour, however, rests squarely on the shoulders of 
the Lodge Chairman and District Supervisors. 

Dwindling Lodge attendance is mentioned in several 
reports. It is an old problem which can be at least partially 
solved if a sincere effort is brought to bear on it. Suggested 
solutions include the following: 1. prompt opening of 
Lodges: 2. despatch in handling the business ("without 
neglecting full discussion); 3. well planned degrees; 
4. few speeches in the Lodge room; 5. more' time made 
available for the social hour after the meeting; 6. making 
sure that members are able to leave by 11:00 p.m. Some 
Lodges have found a dinner before the meeting has improved 
attendance. 



Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 



B. B. FOSTER, 

Chairman. 



REPORT OF THE LIBRARY COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. W. M. 
Gordon, Chairman. On motion of the Deputy Grand 
Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Gordon, it was re- 
ceived and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful tihe Grand Master. Officers and 
Members of Grand Lodge, A. F. & A. M. of Canada 
in the I*rovince of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

It is the pleasure of this Committee to report on the 
activities and the condition of your Library for the Masonic 
year 1961-62. and we here wish to thank you for the favour 
that you conferred on us when you appointed us to this 
important task. 

But before going intx) the details and summary of our 
work, perhaps you will allow us to recall a bit of the early 



216 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

history of this CJommittee, to name some of the luminaries 
of those earlier years, and for the record, to mention the 
date and place where such data may be found. 

Now. the first time that a Libraiy Committee was set up 
as a sub-committee of the Board of General Purposes was 
in 19^37; (see page 389 of the Proceedings of that year). 
Previous to that time, there had been a Special Committee 
whose Chairman was the late M.W. Bro. Charles Hamilton. 
The late R.W. Bro. John Nesis became Chairman in 1938, and 
he was succeeded in 1943 by R.W. Bro. G. F. Kingston; in 
1944 by our now P.G.M. Harry L. Martyn; in 1949 by R.W, 
Bro. John R. Rumball; in 1951 by V.W. Bro. B. S. Edmondson; 
in 1960 by R.W. Bro. Molson Cain, and last July the M.W. 
the Grand Master etitrusted the responsibility to me. I think 
that you will agree with me when I say that our Grand 
Lodge owes much in appreciation of the services of those who 
have carefully tended and encouraged this garden of Craft 
Knowledge over these past twenty-four years. 

So much for the earlier days. Now, let me tell you 
what has been done in this past year. Our records show: 

Visitors to the Library 885 

Books loaned to local borrowers 339 

Books mailed to outside districts 269 

Letters written to brethren in the Jurisdiction 

and elsewhere 101 

In addition to the foregoing expected services, our Li- 
brary also acts as an information centre for travelling Masons, 
who may happen to be in the city and for many who ask for 
information as to tihe locations and names of Lodges in per- 
haps the British Isles, in Australia or in the large country 
to our south and other countries. Quite frequently there are 
calls from those who have the idea to join Freemasonry, but 
do not know how to go about it. Your Librarian has to 
answer theise calls every day. 

Additions to our Library sometimes come from the 
estates of deceased brethren as well as bv purchase. We have 
what is probably the finest Masonic Library in Canada. It 
comprises the newest and the oldest books, the best of all 
current Craft publications; and our facilities enable us to 
direct enquiring brethren as to where they may purchase 
books which they may -wish to add to their private libraries. 

All of the foregoing is tinged with a rosy and hopeful 
hue. but wp must report one feature that gives rise to some 
concern. We. on our part, are most happy to cater to the 
wishes of our borrowers. We loan, either bj'^ hand or by mail, 
valuable books to these brethren. The majority-, by far, 
return those loans on time and in good condition, but there 
aire the few that are negligent in conforming to our rules. 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 196i2 217 

When tihis happens, books are lost — some of them irreplace- 
able. Your Committee would, therefore, like to point out to 
the membership that books retained on loan for longer than 

the prescribed period — or in some cases not returned at all 

are. therefore, unavailable to others who desire to read or 
borrow them. Our resources must be shared with the great- 
est number. 

Your CShairman is pleased to announce' that a new booklet 
has now been prepared of the books in your Library. Tins 
booklet is available to you on application therefor to the 
Librarian, 888 Yonge Street, Toronto. Your Chairman 
desires to pay tribute at this time to the members of the 
Committee and to others who so conscientiously discharged 
this task. It is the hope of your Committee to make ar- 
rangements for a wide distribution of this booklet in order 
that members at large be made aware of the great fund of 
Masonic knowledge available at the Library. 

And in conclusion, may we quiote a few words from a 
gw)d brother in New South Wales who said, a few years ago 
tiiat "as Masonry is a progressive ©cience, that our ceremonies 
of initiating, passing and raising, though admittedly import- 
ant functionis, that the educative work of FVeemasonry should 
be the chief responsibility of those entrusted with the govern- 
ment of our Lodges". To assist and further this noble aim 
is, we consider, the' purpose and mission of our Library. 



Respectfully submitted. 



WILLARD M. GORDON, 

Chairman.

GRAND CHAFLAIN^S REPORT 

This report was presented by R.W. Pro. A. J. 
Anderson, Grand Chaplain, and on motion of the 
Deputy Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Pro. 
Anderson, it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master. Officers, and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

As a small boy I was encouraged to memorize a poem 
which was said to be a favourite of Abraham Lincoln. It 
opened like this: — 

"Backward, turn backward, time in thy flight." 

At this particular moment I can quite readily echo the 
thought expressed, for the past year has glided by so very 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 219 

swiftly that I cannot quite realize my term of office as Grand 
Chaplain is at an end. It has been a rare privilegfe indeed to 
follow so many worthy men, and attempt, in a small way to 
emulate their contributions to Masonry in this Grand jurisdic- 
tion. 

On numerous occasions during the past year I have been 
honoured to be present with some of the brethren at district 
and local Divine Services. The most kindly reception has 
always been afforded me, and for this I am grateful. Perhaps 
I may be permitted to say that if any one of these services 
stood out above others, it would be one held in Holy Trinity 
CJhurch. Plevna, in the northern part of Frontenac County. 
This service was under the auspices of Sharbot Lake Lodge, 
and I felt extremely privileged to worship with brethren, many 
of them old friends, who travelled from far and wide to be 
present. 

I beg to report. Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren, that 
all but tvvo or three Districts in this Province have appointed 
District Chaplains — at least, all but this number have reported 
such appointments. To these District Chaplains the Craft 
owes much, and I am confident that many a District Deputy 
Grand Master will bear this out. 

A special tribute has been earned by the Assistant Grand 
Chaplain, whose unswerving enthusiasm for Masonry has 
been a tremendous help to the Grand Chaplain. 

An emphasis made in the report of the Grand Chaplain 
last year, bears rei>etition here. It has to do with the holding 
of Divine Ser\nces. The general public is only vaguely aware 
of the meaning of Masonry, and that our Craft is God-centred. 
We have in the Divine Sei^ice an opportunity to witness in 
strength to the face we hold. 

Respectfully and fraternally submitted, 

ALLAN J. ANDERSON. 

Grand Chaplain. 

REPORT OF BLOOD DONORS' COMMITTEE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. G. E. 
Turner, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy' 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Turner, it 
was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Blood Donors' Committee begs to present the report 
of its activities for the year 1961-1962. 



220 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

Prior to the submission of this report, I would like to 
express our sympathy to Rt. Wor, Bro. Frank Shannon on 
his illness, which necessitated the relinquisihing: of the Ghair- 
manship of this Ck)mmittee, our thanks to the G.A.O.T.U. 
for restoring him to health, and our hope that his good health 
will continue for many years to com«. 

At the time of compiling this report, there was a decrease 
in the number of donors amounting to 312, which gives a 
grand total of 5,307 donors. The following is a list of 
Districts, together with the District Chairmen, and the .number 
of donors reported from each District, compared with the 
number last year.

Let us briefly consider the above table. Hamilton "A" 
District has reported the largest number of donors, and we 
heartily commend Wor. Bro. Fred Scott for his untiring 
effort. There was an increase of donors in 21 Districts, a 
decrease in 6. and 10 Districts failed to report any donors. 
Amonsr the 10 Districts failing to report, there are 5 whick 
have failed to report for 2 years, and of these, 4 have failed 
to report for 3 years. We must assume, either correctly 
or incorrectly, that these Districts are not interested in this 



TORONTO, ONTARIO. 1962 221 

undertaking. The Committee would like to assure any 
Chairman of assistance in setting up his local commititee. 

We tender our sincere thanks to those who have assist- 
ed in the preparation of this report. Our particular thanks 
go to the District Deputy Grand Masters, who, although busy 
with other duties, have so graciously assisted the Chairmen 
whom they have appointed. The Chairmen have been of 
great help, and we hope that they too, have benefited from 
their experience. Finally, our appreciation is extended to 
the Grand Secretary and his staff for the many services 
extended during the year. I would also like to extend my 
personal thanks to R.W. Bro. Shannon for his unselfish help 
during the year. 

This Ancient Order, if it be true to its traditions, has 
work to do. Let each and everj' one of us go forth from 
this meeting, into our great jurisdiction of 136,000 Masons, 
full of determination to support the Blood Donor Service of 
the Eed Cross Organization. Let us return next year full 
of satisfaction that we as Masons, have shown the world at 
large, that we are willing to practice that great Masonic 
virtue. Charity, which we all hold so dear to our hearts. 

Since this report was submitted to the Grand Master 
for his consideration, two further reports have been received.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON 
AUDIT AND FINANCE 

This report was presented by R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Chairman, and on motion of the Deputy 
Grand Master, seconded by R.W. Bro. Berkinshaw, 
it was received and adopted. 

To the Most Worshipful the Grand Master, Officers and 
Members of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M. of Canada, 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

The Reports of the Grand Treasurer, the Grand Secre- 
tary and the Auditor, which have been referred to this Com- 



222 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNTCATION 

mittee for consideration by this Annual Communication of 
Grand Lodge, appear to fully and accurately set out all 
pertinent details relative to the financial position of this 
Grand Lodge for the year ended May 31, 1962. 

Thev contain full information on all receipts and dis- 
bursements in respect to the General Fund, the Memorial 
and Semi-Centennial Funds. They also include details of all 
transactions and changes in the Capital Account and schedules 
of the securities in which Grand Lodge funds were invested as 
of the above mentioned date. 

Your Committee makes the following observations on 
certain subject matters covered by these reports: 

1. The total par value of the above mentioned securities 
as of May 31, 1962 was $1,458,002.36; Cash on Hand and in 
the Bank amounted to $11,632.28, bringing the sum of aU 
resources to $1,469,634.64, as reported by the Grand Treas- 
urer. This is an increase of $51,745.02 over the correspond- 
ing figure of a year ago. This gratifying result was at- 
tained despite the fact that during the year securities to the 
total par value of $156,000.00 have been sold from the Gen- 
eral Fxmd Investment Account and the proceeds used to 
retire the balance of Bank loan indebtedness incurred 
in financing the constructix>n and equipment of the new Grand 
Lodge offices in the City of Hamilton. It is noted that, in 
addition to saving carrying charges, this latter transaction 
also had the effect of releasing from escrow investments 
previously held for the account of the Bank as security for 
loan requirements. 

2. All securities in which Grand Lodge funds are present- 
ly invested are in the category of Trustee Investments, with 
the exception of 5% Series "A" and "B" Debentures of 
Masonic Holdings purchased under authority of Grand Lodge 
to a total par value of $372,000.00 — $20,000.00 less than the 
$392,000.00 reported as being held a year ago and reflecting 
a corresponding redemption by Masonic Holdings of $20,000.00 
of its outstanding debentures during the year under review. 
This Committee has been advised that it is the intention 
of Masonic Holdings to periodically redeem these debentures 
whenever funds are available for such purpose. 

Grand Lodge securities, with few exceptions, are register- 
ed as to capital and intereist. They are held by the Canada 
Permanent Toronto General Trust Company as its duly ap- 
pointed Custodian and are insured against loss. However, 
this Committee suggests that since the risk involved is 
negligible and the premium on this insurance relatively high, 
this coverage should not be renewed when the present policy 
expires during the current month. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 683 

3. Receipts for initiation fees, dues, commutations, interest 
on investments, etc., amounted to $232,294.45, being: $8,144.40 
in excess of the forecast. On the other hand, total disburse- 
ments of $196,107.58 were $17,026.02 less than the estimates. 
Two items of expense mainly contributed to this unusually 
wide discrepancy: 

i Only 40% — $5,072.78 of the premium payable under 
the Contingent Liability Insurance Policy was paid 
during the past year in accordance with a new method 
of instalment payment extended over a three-year 
I)eriod, as arranged with the underwriter. 

ii The Amount of $44,070.00 paid out of the General Fund 
toward Benevolent Grants was substantially lower than 
the appropriation p'ro%'ided for this purpose in the 
Budget. 

A strict control of all expenditures has been maintained. 

According to the audited statements, grants for 
Benevolent purposes amounted to a total of $59,377.42, 
almost $6,000.00 less than the figure for the previous year. 

Under this heading ^raur Committee again draws to the 
attention of Grand Lodge the fact that, though no known 
cases of need which fall within the responsibility of this 
Grand Lodge have been neglected to the slightest degree, 
there is a continuing downward trend in the number of cases 
and in the demands on Grand Lodge funds for Benevolent 
Grants — a condition which has arisen from the development 
and establishment, during recent years, of a broad system of 
social security benefits supported by general taxation. 

Since, as reported by the Auditor, the resources shown 
in the General Fund Account include an accumulated sum of 
$124,008.96. which is available for Benevolent purposes only, 
in accord with the pro\'lsions of Section 245 (m) of the 
Constitution, the present time would appear to be appropri- 
ate for (a) a reappraisal of Grand Lodge position vis-a-vis its 
possible future obligations and responsibilities to render 
financial assistance to Brethren in need, taking into consider- 
ation current conditions and those which are likely to pre- 
vail in the future; and (b) a full consideration of ways and 
means of putting these funds to more advantageous use 
within a broader concept of benevolence than has been en- 
visaged in the past. 

Requirements for Benevolent Grants for the current year 
are estimated at $65,000.00, of which amount your Committee 
recommends that 50% should be paid out of the General 
Fund. The income and income funds available from the 
Combined Memorial and Semi-Centennial Funds will be 
sufficient to provide the balance. Your Committee recom- 



224 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

mends that all the income derived from capital investments 
of these two last mentioned Combined Funds should be ap- 
plied to the fullest possible extent in meeting Grand Lodge 
annual obligations for Benevolent Grants. 

The practice presently followed in making payments 
of authorized grants appears to be unnecessarily compli- 
cated; consequently, your Committee suggests that a morel 
simplified procedure be developed, subject to the consent 
and approval of the Grand Lodge Auditor. 

The time, thought and careful consideration given to all 
cases requiring financial assistance of this Grand Lodge by 
the Chairman and members of the Committee on Benevolence, 
especially the Supervisor, R.W. Bro. George J. McQueen, 
merit the highest praise and commendation of our member- 
ship. 

Your Committee recommends that Grand Lodge approve 
the six special donations made under the autliority of the 
Grand Master and itemized in the audited statements sub- 
mitted by the Grand Treasurer, namely: 

U.N.LC.E.F. $ 400.00 

Boy Scouts, Ontario Division 400.00 

Girl Guides, Ontario Division — 400.00 

Cancer Fund, Ontario 500.00 

Heart Fund. Ontario 500.00 

Ontario Society for Crippled Children — 500.00 



Total % 2,700.00 

Details of insurance coverage, placed by Grand Lodge 
and currently in effect, have been checked by the Auditor 
and verified by the members of this Committee, who are 
satisfied that Grand lodge property, wherever it may be 
situated, is adequately covered against loss by fire, theft or 
other hazards. 

This Committee has received the fullest co-operation and 
assistance of the Grand Secretary, the Grand Treasurer and 
the Auditor of Grand Lodge accounts in its review of all 
matters covered by this report and formally recommends 
to Grand Lodge the adoption, without amendment, of the 
reports submitted by the above mentioned Officers, who are 
to be commended upon the conscientious and faitMul per- 
formance of the duties of their respective offices. This 
Grand Lodge is fortunate in having the benefit of their 
talents, experience and devoted service. The interesting and 
informative statements which they have presented deserve 
the thoughtful consideration of all Brethren in this Jurisdic- 
tion.

ments for the current fiscal year. 

All of which is respectfully and fraternally submitted. 

On behalf of the Committee, 

R. C. BERKINSHAW, 

Chairman. 



RE CHARITABLE TRUST 

At the request of the Grand Master, R.W. Bro. R. C. 
Berkinshaw, Chairman of a Special Grand Master's Com- 
mittee charged with the duty of reviewing and reporting 
to the Grand Master on the subject of a re-apportionment of 
the per capita fee as levied under Section 245 (m) of the 
Constitution, submitted an interim verbal statement covering 
a proposal for a revision by amendment of Section 245 (m) 



TORONTO. ONTARIO, 1962 a27 

and the establishment of a Foundation or irrevocable Chari- 
table Trust. 

In his remarks. R.W. Bro. Berkinshaw pointed out that 
a study of the above subject revealed the following facts: 

1. In recent years, grants by Grand Lodge for benevolent 
purposes, both in number and amount, have showm a diminish- 
ing trend, although adequate and appropriate provision has 
been made for all cases deserving assistance. 

2. This downward trend is likely to continue due to the 
fact that the present system of social security benefits, 
which is supported by taxation, has relieved Grand Lodge 
to a substantial degree of many obligations which it would 
otherwise be called upon to assume. 

3. As a result of this trend, there has accumulated in the 
General Fund account, as of July 31, 1962, a substantial 
sum which is available for benevolent purposes only under 
the present rigid constitutional apportionment of the per 
capita fees. 

4. If present revenues continue, this accumulated sum will 
continue to build up year after year to dispropwrtionate 
figures unless some remedial action is taken such as is 
proposed by the Committee. 

5. That a fixed constitutional apportionment of the per 
capita fee is no longer necessary nor advisable. 

6. That a more flexible procedure should be adopted to 
provide for changed and ever-changing conditions without 
the formality of a constitutional amendment. 

7. As one means of accomplishing the objective set out 
in item No. 6, the Board of General Purposes could be author- 
ized and empowered to periodically, as required, make sucli 
apportionment of the oer capita fee as may be necessary to 
meet all obligations of Grand Lodge for benevolent grants. 

8. That the time is opportune for a reappraisal or reorien- 
tation of Grand Lodge policy in relation to benevolent grants 
— indeed, towards benevolence in its most general form. 

Consequently, as a result of these findings and deliber- 
ations, the Special Committee proposes that certain recom- 
mendations as set out below be submitted in due course for 
consideration of Grand Lodge. 

(a) That Section 245 (m) of the Book of Constitution be 
amended bv strikins: out the words "of which sixtv cents 
shall be used for benevolent purposes only and sixty 



228 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA ANNUAL COMMUNICATION 

cents shall be paid into the General Fund" so that it 
will read as follows: 

(m) "fo-r every member of a Lodge whose fees have 
not been commuted to Grand Lodge, including 
honorary and charter members, $1.20 per annum; 
for each member whose fees have beeti commuted 
to Grand Lodge after July 1st, A.D., 1960, the 
Lfodge shall pay 10 cents per annum. 

(b) That appropriate legal action should be taken by 
resolution of Grand Lodge pursuant to notice duly given, 
to provide: — 

i That all monies in the General Fund designated 
as to origin or purpose — particularly for benevolent 
purposes only — be merged in such Fund without 
separate identification or restriction as to use. 

ii That the Board of General Purposes shall have 
authority and power to designate from time to time 
appropriations from the said General Fund in such 
amounts as the Board may deem adequate' and ex- 
pedient, according to the needs and requirements 
of such Grand Lodge activities and obligations 
(including grants for benevolent purposes) as may 
be recognized and sanctioned from time to time 
by the said Board. 

(c) That Grand Lodge take such steps as may be necessary 
to create a Charitable Trust or Foundation. 



In connection with this last recommendation (c), R.W. 
Bro. Berkinshaw outlined in general form certain character- 
istics which, in the opinion of the Committee, should be given 
due consideration in providing for the establishment of a 
Trust Foundation: 

1. It should be incorporated under the laws of the Province 
of Ontario as a non-profit organization without share capitaJ. 

2. Under its charter, it should be given broad powers and 
objectives, such as recei\nng. holding, managing and distri- 
buting funds or assets to or for the benefit of charitable 
and philanthropic endeavour of any nature which will effect 
the purpose of Masonry. 

3. Both capital and income of the Foundation should be 
available exclusively for such charitable, scientific or edu- 
cational purposes as Grand Lodge may from time to time 
recognize, sanction and confirm. 



TORONTO, ONTARIO, 1962 229 

4. The Trust or Foundation should have all the qualifi- 
cations of a charitable organization as defined by law to 
which all contributions, bequests, legacies, devises or trans- 
fers may be deductible, either in computing the taxable in- 
come of the donor or from the value of an Estate for Suc- 
cession Duty purposes. 

To attain the above objective, it will have to be consti- 
tuted as an irrevocable Trust, 

5. It should be managed by a Board of Directors and should 
operate under the teiTns of a Deed of Trust between Grand 
Lodge and the Foundation defining the scope of the projects 
and objectives which could or should be underwritten or 
eupported by the Foundation, 

6. The capital of the Foundation may be provided or ob- 
tained from several sources; e.g: 

i Initially, by transfer from the General Fund Invest- 
ment Account of a sum equal to that which has 
already accumulated in said Account and is to be 
used for benevolent purposes only, 

ii By such amounts as may from time to time be 
deemed by Grand Lodge to be available for transfer 
from the General Fund Account, 

iii By annual appropriations of such portion of the per 
capita fees as may be deemed available for this 
purpose by the Board of General Purposes. 

iv By contributions, gifts, donations, legacies, bequests, 
etc., which it is anticipated would be made by in- 
dividuals, especially Masons who may desire to aid 
a worthy charitable endeavour, the character and 
acti\aties of which were favourably and widely 
known. 

In making this interim report, R,W. Bro. Berkinshaw 
pointed out that before the details of the proposed plan 
could be submitted to Grand Lodge for final consideration 
and appropriate action, certain legal formalities must be 
complied with, including Notices of Motion and the pre- 
paration of an appropriate and satisfacton,' Deed of Trust, 
the terms of which would clearly establish a basis for the 
operations and activities of the proposed Foundation. 

He therefore, requested that Grand Lodge favourably 
consider the appointment of a Special Committee to give the 
subject further study and submit its i-ecommendations to the 
next Annual Sessions of Grand Lodge in July, 1963.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE 
ON FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 



To the Most Worshipful, the Grand Master, Officers and 
Membei-s of the Grand Lodge, A.F. & A.M.. of Canada 
in the Province of Ontario. 

Most Worshipful Sir and Brethren: 

Your Comnnittee on Fraternal Correspondence for the 
Masondc Year 1961-62, composed of M.W. Bro. W. L. Wright, 
R.W. Bro. J. A. Irvine, R.W. Bro. E. G. Dixon and M^W. 
H. L. Martyn, Chairman, rejwrts as follows: 



FOREWORD 

As has been the custom for several years the Committee 
Report is presented as a Foreword to introduce the Reviews 
of approximately sixty Grand Lodges from far and near. 
The members of our lodges are given an opportunity to get 
an insight into the workings of the Masonic Jurisdictions 
in other parts of the world. The Committee hoi>es that tiiese 
summaries will be inform.ative and interestting to our mem- 
bers. 

One can find in these pag'es the problems that Masons 
meet in othef jurisdictions. It is interesting to note that many 
of these are common to all jurisdictions. Then again we may 
compare the various ways that Masons are attempting to 
meet these problems and to sttrengthen the institvition of 
Masoniy Avheresoever dispersed over the face of the globe!. 

No attempt vvill be made to give a subject index to the 
different topics. However, an odd suggestion might be made 
to direct the readers to some of the pressing Masonic 
questions of the present. 

Many lodges and Grand Lodges are giving attention to 
their finances and the dues' structures in their lodges. The 
reader may find interesting comments and decisions on this 
under Arizona. Nebraska, Oregon and Maine. 

It should be no surprise to us to find significant comment 
on the link the Order has, and should have, with the Church. 
Some of these appear in the re\'iew of C-olorado, Michigan, 
South Dakota, Noilh Dakota and South Corolina. This topic 
will also be mentioned in many of the other Reviews. 

In all these Re^-iews the alttention of the reader is direct- 
ed toward differences and similarities in procedure and oper- 
ation and one soon realizes that Masonry is a very vital and 



living: force in the world now as it has always been in the 
past. In order that we may do our part to ensure the future 
of the Order, we must be aware of trends abroad as they 
might influence our lodges. Masonic Education, lodge at- 
tendance, qualification of lodge officers and such related 
subjecits will be found discussed in these pages. The comment 
on the "Examination of visitors" as taken from the Utah 
Review has something for us to think about. 

So we leave the printed word to the individual. Much 
time and expense have gone into the preparation of the 
Reviews. We feel that this can be completely justified if our 
members \\all take advantage of the opportunity of getting 
the broad view of world-wide Masoni-y. We can then feel 
that we are an integral part of this gi'eat institution which 
stretches far beyond the bounds of our Masonic Jurisdiction. 

The Committee desires to express its appreciation to our 
Reviewer, R.W. Bro. James J. Talman, for the masterly way 
he has prepared and written the Reviews. All that follows 
comes from Brother Talman's pen. 

Respectfully submitted, 

H. L, MARTYN. Chairman. 



Fraternal Correspondence and Reviews 



ALABAMA— 1961 

141st Annual Communication — November 21-22 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. G. L. Evatt 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. A. R. Fant 

Lodges, 434. Membership, 76,511. Gain, 106. 

Since the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of F. & A.M. 
of Alabama for 1960 arrived too late for inclusion last year 
this review actually covers two years of activity. 

Of the several ceremonies of laying cornerstones the 
most satisfying during the year was that for the new chapel 
at the Alabama Masonic Home. 

Another singular event was recorded when a new Lodge 
building was dedicated and consecrated for Lee Lodge No. 
454. This Lodge laid the cornerstone, completed construction 
and retired all indebtedness during the current year. 

The Grand Master pointed out that the Masonic Home 
of which all in the Grand Jurisdiction are justly proud "is 
big business, and expensive." The Home has 115 residents, 
a great portion being ill and requiring attention. The total 
Masonic Home budget, including farm operation was 
$223,920.00 for the year. 

The Grand Master recommended that an official Grand 
Historian be appointed to prepare for the coming Sesqui- 
centerunial of the Grand Lodge in 1971. He also recommend- 
ed that in 1963, and ending in 1970, three cents per member, 
excluding Ministers of the Gospel, be set aside with the 
annual returns in a special fund to celebrate the occasion. 

During the year it was noticed that the Grand Lodge 
seal was wearing out and needed to be replaced. At the 
same time the absence on the old seal of any reference to 
"Free and Accepted Masons" was noted. A new seal was 
designed with the woixls added. 

The first Sesquicentennial of any Lodge in the Grand 
Jurisdiction occurred during the year. The Lodge is Helion 
No. 1. From the roll of Lodges it would appear that eight 
more Lodges are on the eve of similar annivei'saries.

56th Annual Communicaition — June 14-16

Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. M. G. Memer 

Ixxiges, 170. Memberehip, 19,237. Gain, 306. 

Much interest is apparent throughout the Province in 
the formation of new Lodges, particularly in new areas and 
in the larger cities, according to the Committee on the Con- 
dition of Masonry. Grand Lodge has cautioned all petitioners 
to be sure that there are sufficient permanent members in a 
community to continue satisfactorily. The rejwrts of the 
District Deputies seemed to indicate that when a Lodge 
reaches a membership of over 300 the percentage of attend- 
ance declines. The Committee added: "The parking problems 
and the long distances to be travelled from the newer areas 
surrounding our cities undoubtedly have an adverse effect on 
attendance." 



The Grand Master refused a request to move a Charter 
to put on degree work in the same city as he thought that 
members should not be deprived of the privilege of witness- 
ing the conferring of degrees on new members and the 
same result could be obtained by inter-lodge visits. 

R.W. Bro. G. Towers, D.D.G.M. District No. 4 spoke 
highly of the welfare of Masonry in his District. "I have 
no complaint to make whatsoever Avith regard to the work, 
zeal and qualifications of the Masters and Officers of the 
several lodges." He was concerned, however, over the records 
of attendance and made a point, not often brought out, but 
no doubt valid, when he wrrote: "I find that it is not just 
the newly made Mason who is drifting away but what is 
more noticeable is the absence of the Past Masters at the 
meetings." He pointed out the great resiK>nsibility of these 
Past Masters to contribute their inspdration and guidance. 

The only Lodge in the North West Territories is Yellow- 
knife Lodge, No. 162. It continues to thrive despite the fact 
that the membership is of a transient nature. Both attend- 
ance and membership increased during the year. The Lodge 
maintains a high standard of work and also carries out a 
full social programme with a bonspeil, golf match, family 
picnic and a very successful Masonic Ball. Strong represent- 
ations have been made to establish a Lodge at Port Smi'tii, 
also in the N.W.T. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE « 

The speaker at the Grand Lodge banquet was our own 
M W Bro C. MacL, Pitts. He was received most enthusiastic- 
aliy.* 

Masonry, clearly has progressed a long way in Alberta 
and all members are associated with a thriving and ever 
growing fraternity, as the Committee on the Condition of 
Masonry concludes. 

ARIZONA— 1961 

79tli Annual Communication — April 24-25 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. E. A. Spitler 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. H. W. HoUey 

Lodges, 60. Membership, 12,589. Gain, 319. 

The full name of this Grand Lodge is The Grand Lodge 
of Pree and Accepted Masons of the State of Arizona. Of 
the twenty-five living Past Grand Masters, twenty-one at- 
tended Grand Lodge. 

One of the special meetings of the year in the Grand 
Jurisdiction was the Annual Texas Canyon Outdoor Com- 
munication which the Grand Master attended. A good soak- 
ing rain, greatly needed in the area, did not dami>en the 
Bpirit of the occasion. 

Of thirty amendments to by-laws approved, ten raised 
fees, ten raised dues and eight raised both fees and dues. 
The trend to raise fees noted last year evidently is continuing. 

The Constitution of the Grand Lodge provides that a 
Master-elect must qualify for a certificate of proficiency 
before he can be installed. This year one of the Masters- 
elect failed to qualify and the Grand Master ruled that the 
Master should continue in office until time, circumstances 
or constitutional procedure warranted a new election. Evident- 
ly the Grand Lodge is wisely determined to maintain high 
standards among lodge officers. 

One interesting question was put to the Grand Master 
"Are beer and wine considered as liquor by the Grand Lodge 
of Arizona?" He ruled that they are. 

The Grand Lodge was host to the third annual meeting 
of the Masonic Conference, in September, 1960. The Confer- 
ence is made up of representatives of the Grand Lodges of 
Arizona, Arkansas, New Mexico. Oklahoma and Texas. The 
subjects covered were 'Tublic Relations," "What is being 



6 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

done to retain the interest of the newly made Masons?" 
"Public Schools," "Trial Procedures," and "Should a Lodge 
sponsor or participate in a project serving to identify the 
Lodge with its community?" 

The interest of the Grand Lodge in education was shown 
by the setting up of scholarehips of $400. each. 

ARKANSAS— 1961 

120th Annual Communication — November 21-22 

Grand Master 1960-61— M.W. Bro. J. B. Doniham 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. B. M. Butt 

Lodges, 381. Membership, 55,200. Loss, 504. 

Although the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, Free and 
Accepted Masons of Arkansas suffered a fairly substantial 
numerical loss, the year was one of great physical expansion. 
Seven coraerstones for new Temples vvere laid and several 
new ones dedicated. One new Lodge was constituted. Peace 
and harmony prevailed so universally in the Grand Juris'dic- 
tion that the Grand Master was not called on to make any 
recommendations, decisions or interpretations throughout 
the year. 

The Grand Master attended two open air meetings. At 
the first held "in the Gravel Pit in Harrisiburg" there were 
about 500 in attendance. Thh is an annual affair. The 
second meeting "held in an open field on Buttermilk Bend 
on Black River near Pocahontas" also attracted 500. The 
Master's Degree was conferred. 

The Grand Master concluded: "Brethren, if you will 
pennit me to give you my opinion of these meetings, I will 
have to say, 'What can we do? What kind of a program 
can we have that will entice the brethren of our state and 
other Grand Jurisdictions to drive hundreds of miles to come 
and see the degrees put on in an intelligent manner?' They 
do not come for the fried chicken or catfisih so to speak; they 
come for the association and fellowship with the brethren and 
to hear the ritual and see the floor work." 

During the year the Grand Master wrote to every newly 
raised Master Mason welcoming him into the Fraternity. 
In the same period one hundred fifty-year buttons were 
awarded. 

Arkansas Research Lodge No. 739 is a most active 
organization. One paper prepared by the Lodge on Fay 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 7 

Hampstead, Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of Arkansas 
focr fifty-three years, a poet and a historian, was printed in 
the Proceeding-s. The Grand Master piit forward a proposal 
to erect a bust to the memory- of this distinguished Mason 
in the Albert Pike Memorial Temple. Little Rock. It may 
not be generally known that Albert Pike was the first 
Arkansas Mason to attain high distinction in world Free- 
miasonry. An article of Pike was included. 

Another article prepared by the Research Lodge was a 
timely one on Masoni-y in Arkansas during the Civil War. 
Im spite of the trials and difficulties of the time, Masonry 
was active. When the war between the States ended, leading' 
Masons from evei-y section of the country assembled at 
Oalumbus, Ohio, determined that peace and harmony should 
prevail. Had their example been followed by other elements 
in the nation and particularly the political, much subsequent 
hardship and injustice probably could have been avoided. 



BRITISH COLUMBIA— 1961 

90th Annual dommunication — June 22-23 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. C. G. McMynn 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. J. R. Mitchell 

Lodges. 166. Membership, 26,729. Gain, 221. 

The Grand Master spoke at length on the importance of 
Masonic Education. In part he said: "In this modem world, 
with many changes taking place, I feel we should be con- 
tinually endeavouring to improve and expand our efforts in 
the promotion of Masonic Education. ... I feel it is too 
much to expect that the basic facts and fundamental principles 
of Ma&oni-y can be taught by the conferring of the several 
degrees by the Lodge, and the candidate learning the work 
required of him. The operative Mason in ancient times spent 
seven years before he became a skilled Craftsman and a 
Master Mason. In Speculative Masonry we become a Master 
Mason in a few short months. 

"Freemasonry cannot be learned in a few easy lessons. 
Every candidate should receive individual instruction in the 
basic facts and fundamental principles of Freemasonry. Time 
is not sufficient for this to be done in the Lodge. Problems 
broug-ht to my attention during my travels, some small and 
some of great concern to the indi^ndu.al or Lodge, would not 
have occurred had those concerned been better informed. 
We cannot expect to eliminate nroblems. human nature as it 
is, few^ or any of us are perfect, but through expanding- 



8 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Masonic Education we can reduce the number of probleme. 
This should be our objective." 

At the same time the Grand Master was pleased to be 
able to report that he had not been called on to make any 
ruling's. 

The reports of the D.D.G.M.'s show that they were active 
and found the work being consisitently well done. Most 
Lodges have improved their financial positdons. Interchange 
of fraternal visits continued. King Solomon Lodge No. 17 
visited Bellingham Bay Lodge No. 44, Bellingham, Washing- 
ton, for the fifty-fourth year. 

The Committee on Fraitemal Correspondence commented 
on the tendency of some to blame sparse attendance at meet- 
ings on activity in so-called "appendant organizations." The 
Committee noted that they found that Brethren active in 
these organizations were also regular in their attendance in 
their Lodges. They added "Although we find some other 
Grand Lodges refer to their Constituent Lodges as 'Blue 
Lodges' Ave in this Grand Lodge consider it proiper to desig- 
nate our Lodges as 'Craft Lodges.' " 



CALIFORNIA— 1961 

112th Annual Communication^ — 'September 25-29 

Grand Master, 1960-61 — M.W. Bro. A. F. Breslauer 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. G. B. Mize 

Lodges, 700. Membersihip, 243,346. Gain, 1,527. 

Last year the Grand Master recommended that a special 
committee be appointed to study the propriety of adding 
"and HAWAII" to the name of the Grand Lodge, The Com- 
mittee met with representatives of the Lodges in the 
Hawaiian Islands and recommended that the name be not 
changed. So the full name of the Grand Lodge remains 
"The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of F^ee and Accepted 
Masons of the State of California." 

Once again the Grand Jurisdiction enjojred a most suc- 
cessful year. Lodge No, 801 was constituted in Honolulu. 
Thus, for some time future Lodges will be numbered in the 
800's. In addition to the 700 Lodges shown above as working 
in California there are four active Research Lodges. There 
are now ten Lodges in the Hawaiian Islands, seven located 
in the vicinity of Honolulu and one on each of the outlying 
islands. 

After many years of planning, the Grand Lodge Library 
was brought into existence in the California Memorial 



FRATELRNAL CORRESPONDENCE 9 

Masonic Temple. It is hoped that in time the Library will 
be the finest collection of material dealing with the early 
Masonic history of California and Hawaii. 

Each year sees the laying of many cornerstones in 
California. But this year in addition, saw what must surely 
have been something unique when on two occasions the Grand 
Lodge was convened for the special purpose of re-laying 
cornerstones which had been laid with Masonic ceremonies 
one hundred years previously. The first was at the century- 
dd Columbia Elementary School House. The second meet- 
ing was called for no less a purpose than to re-lay the 
cornerstone of the State Capitol, at the request of the present 
Governor of California. The first occasion was May 15, 1861, 
the second May 13, 1961. "Masonry received most favorable 
comments in the press for these events." 

There are some interesting statistics presented regard- 
ing tihe Home for Children operated by the Grand Lodge at 
Covina. With an estimated capacity of 178, the number in 
residence has dropped steadily from 148 in 1938 to 47 in 1960. 
The pleading feature of the drop in totals is that one of 
the factors making for the decline is generally improved 
family stability and fijiancial resources. A question does 
arise, howe\^er: "Should terms of admission be made wider 
in order to make fuller \ise of the f acilitiesi ? " 

The Committee on Policy and General Purposes consider- 
ed a resolution that minimum dues in all Lodges be raised 
to $15.00 per year from the present statutory $12.00. The 
Committee was unanimously opposed to the proposal. Only 
121 Lodges have $12.00 annual dues, one $14.00 while all 
tihe rest have dues $15.00 or higher. Many of the Lodges 
with low dues do not require extra income as they o\\-n their 
own temples and operate inexpensively. Of the other Lodges 
one sets the annual dues at $25.00, four at $24.00 and twenty- 
two at $20.00. The average in the Grand Jurisdiction is 
$15.56. 

The Grand Lodge has operated Masonic Homes for over 
sixty years. Inevitably, some of the buildings are no longer 
new. A handsome new hospital building was opened at 
Union City and in a few months the population reached a 
peak of 96. 

The old touTi of Columbia is now a State Park where 
several buildings have beeai restored. The Grand Lodge, at 
the cost of many thousands of dollars has rebuilt the old 
Masonic Temple to its' original condition. It is now frequent- 
ly used for conferring degrees. The Committee on Masonic 
Oemeteries recommended that the Grand Lodge also restore 
tihe Masonic Cemetery there to a presentable condition.

Since this was the one hundredth Annual Communieation 
of The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and 
Accepted Masons of GoLorado, accounts of the plans for the 
celebration of the centennial of the organization occupied a 
leading place. The state w^ide celebration was planned for 
'Denver in September and many local commemorative meet- 
ings were planned. A sum of $52,000 has been budgeted for 
the celebration. The Committee has worked hard and well 
and next year's Proceedings, which describe the events, 
should be interesting to read. 

The Church and Masonry work well together in Colorado. 
The Grand Master presided at the Summer Sunday Evening 
United Worship Service of the Denver Area Council of 
Churches. This service always has a large attendance. But 
on this occasion the attendance was the largest on record. 

The Grand Master was also invited to lay the cornerstone 
of a United Presbyterian Church as part of the Sunday 
morning services. While the request was unusual the Grand 
Master acceded to the wishes of the congregation in view 
of the circumstances and conditions that we as a fraternity 
face today. The Grand Master discovered that the Grand 
Master of New Mexico also laid the cornerstone of a church 
during a Sunday service in 1959. The Grand Master ooncluded 
"I know that in our Grand Jurisdiction there is a strong 
feeling in favor of support of churches, which stand for the 
concepts and ideals on which lour fraternity is founded." 

Further evidence of the fraternal feelings between the 
Grand Lodge and church bodies was shown in the decisions 
of the Grand Master. A lodge wiished to allow the Divine 
Science and Lutheran Church gToui)s to use their Masonic 
building and lodge room for services on Sunday mornings 
until they could complete their new buildings. The question 
was vi-ould this be permissible ? The decision was that it was 
entirely permissible and a matter for the lodge to decide, 
providing there was no money involved which might cause 
technical complications regarding taxes, and. of course, pro- 
viding that all lodge paraphernalia, equipment, etc., were 
remio-ved. 

Another uncommon enquiry posed the problem "as to 
•whether or not a petition should be received from a man of 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 11 

sub-normal stature, -more commonly known as a midget." 
ITie decision was- that the stature did' not matter as long as 
the petitioner had the "thinking, attitude, concepts and 
qualificaitions to becoming a Mason." 

The Grand Lodge has a Committee at work to investigate 
the possibility of developing pleasant and inexpensive hous- 
ing accommodations for such members of its constituent 
bodies in good standing, their wives and widows who cannot 
otherwise obtain satisfactaiy housing upon reasonable terms. 
This proposal follows the decision of the year pre\'ious that 
Colorado would not set up a Masonic Home. 

During the year the Grand Master constituted four new 
lodges and granted dispensations to two more. 

Masonry in Colorado is in a healthy condition. 



CONNECTICUT— 1961 

17Srd Annual Communication — April 5-6

Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. P. D. Collier 

Lodges, 133. Membership, 47,645. Loss, 295. 

The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons 
of the State of Connecticut is the full name of this Grand 
Jurisdiction. 

The former Committee on Masonic Education is now 
known as the Committee on Masonic Culture and Public 
Relations. The first fruits of their laboui^ is an officers' 
manual. This is a diges't of the material which has accnied 
over the yeai's throuarh the efforts of the former Committee. 
A careful perusal of the Manual should enable any officer 
to have a much clearer idea of his duties and responsibilities. 

Another new Committee on the Condition of Masonry 
suggested that it appears that one of the most prevalent 
difficulties in Connecticut FVeemasonry today is the lack of 
knowledige and infoi-mation on the part of some Masters 
and other officers of Lodges. The Grand Jurisdiction is 
evidently doing something to alleviate the situation. 

Although poor attendance is mentioned, it may be noted 
that a dispensation was granted to Wolcott Lodge No. 60 
to hold its stated communication in a memorial hall, adequate- 



12 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ly tyled, because the regular meeting place was too small 
to accommodate the expected attendance. Twin sons of a 
Past Master of the Lodge were to receive the M.M. degree. 

Likewise, St. Albam's Lodge No. 38 received dispensation 
to work a degree in a high sduool as the anticipab«i attend- 
ance was expected to exceed the siafe legal capacity of the 
regular Lodge Room. The Lodge invited six other Lodges 
with the name "St. Alban's" to be its guests. The Lodges 
were from far afield: Foxboro, Mass.. Bristol, R.I., Marshall, 
Mich., Jackson, La., Glendale. N.Y. and the Canadian re- 
presentation from Montreal, Que. 

In 1^55 the penalty for non-representation at the Annual 
Communication was raised from $8.00 to $25.00. Since then 
tihe Lodges have been represented 100%. One Lodge failed 
to file its annual return on time. The fine of $15.00 set by 
the regulations was promptly paid. The Grand Jurisdiction 
is evidently operated in a most businesslike manner. 

The Grand Lodge operates, most successfully, a Home 
and Hospital for men and women. The total assets axe 
approaching seven million dollars. Between the two insti- 
tutions three hundred are accommodated. 

During the year the Committee on Delinquency and 
Finances of Lodges graded the constituent Lodges into: 
Class A. those which were operating on dues alone. Class B, 
those which were operating on dues and fees and Class C, 
those which were operating at a loss. The Lodges classed 
as C are few in number. Forty-three Lodges havfi -raised or 
intend to raise their fees or dues, or both. 

For a number of yeai^ Masonic Education, Libraries 
and Publications have been the subjects of corisidera4ion 
during informal conferences in New England and adjoining 
Grand Jurisdictions. Connecticut acted as host in I960. 
More than sixty individuals registered representing fifteen 
Grand Lodges. 

The Grand Historian reported: "On March 2, 1961 
occurred the 250tih anniversary of the birth of David 
Wooster, Father of Freemasonry in Connecticut. This was 
appropriately observed in Hiram Lodge (1) of New Haven 
(which he founded in 1750). 

"The year j\ist ahead is notable for the occurrence of 
the 150th anniversary of the founding of Warren Lodge (51) 
now of Portland, and of Mt. Olive Lodge C52) of Essex. 
And still more so for the 200th anniversary of old St. John's 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 13 

Lodige (3) now of Bridgeport, marking two centuries of un- 
broken Masonic history in Fairfield County." 

There are important anniversaries approaching in many 
Lodges not to mention the coming 17»th anniversary of the 
Grand Lodge itsielf. 

The Committee on the Condition of Masonry reoom- 
mended the enoouiragement of the formation of lodges in 
suburban towns where a local lodge is in a position to be of 
service to the community. More than one Grand Jurisdic- 
tion is recognizing the importance of locating lodges where 
the Brethren can attend close to their homes. 

The same committee added "Whenever a brother moves 
from the local jurisdiction, we would further suggest that 
the lodge secretary write a lodge in the Mason's new place 
of residence, to alert tJiat lodge of the arrival of another 
brother in liieir community." 

The Grand Lodge Reviewer is M. Wor. Bro. E. K. Haling. 
He devoted a full page to the Grand Lodge of Canada in the 
Province of Ontario. 

The Grand Lodge of Connecticut, in addition to having 
a loner and honorable history, clearly is well sensed by its 
constituent Lodges and Committees. It appears to be in a 
most healthy condition. 



DELAWARE— 1961 

156th Annual Communication — October 4-5 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. C. E. Daniels 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. H. C. Johnson 

Lodges, 25. Membership, 8,829. Gain, 124. 

The full name of this Grand Jurisdiction is The Most 
Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted 
Masons of Delaware. Of the twenty-four li^'ing Past Grand 
Masters, no fewer than nineteen attended the Annual Com- 
munication. 

Since the Grand Jurisdiction is small, the Grand Master 
is able to visit each Lodge annually. At these %isits, it has 
become the practice of the Grand Master to present fifty- 
year pin awards. This year he presented forty-two. 

The Grand Lodge has a fine Home maintained by a 
competent staff. Part of the support comes from voluntary 



14 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

contributions of the Masions of the State. An average of 
forty-two out of every one hundred Masons in the State 
contributed. 



It is a matter of interest that after more than a century 
and a half of activity, there is a lack of uniformity in the 
ritualistic work, pai-ticularly between the upper and lower 
sections of the State. A Committee has been working on 
the problem and it is expected that uniformity will be esitab- 
lished. 



Although the Grand Jurisdiction has shown a consistent, 
though small, increase of members over recent years, the 
Grand Master expressed his concern over the number of 
highly qualified able and upright-living men who have never 
developed an interest in the Craft. His conclusions are 
extremely well-reasoned. "So much for our problems. They 
are far from unique to us, but it is here in Delaware that we 
can do something about them. We are faced today with the 
problem of adjusting to the space age. There is no use for 
Masonry or for the World to look back at the glories or the 
comforts of the past. We can go only in one direction' — 
forward. But we can move intelligently with the benefit of 
experience and adapt ourselves to changing conditions so as 
to attain maximum good. 



"What can we do ? We can make it easier for brethren 
to come to lodge. We can make more brethren want to 
come. And. we can improve the popular image of Masonry 
so more of the right men become Masons. 



"To do this we must have more and smaller lodges. These 
lodges must be accessible, they must have parking space. 
In our larger cities it is physically impossible for a brother 
to have dinner with his family and attend lodge. We must 
take the lodge to him. To get members to meetings we must 
make them part of the meeting. No brother is going to 
come month after month to sit in the lodge and passively 
listen to the same old words. Nor do I think that enter- 
tainment isi the answ^er. There is far better entertainment 
available by teilevisiion) and radio in the comfort of his own 
home, if that is what he w^ants. He must be made part of 
the activity. He must become an officer or a member of a 
team on some project. If a Mason has something to do, 
something to hold his interest, I am not worried about at- 
tendance. I have observed many times, in many organiz- 
ations, that the ones who come out are the ones who are 
actively participating in what is going on."

At t(he Sesqui-Centennial Celebration, M.W. Bro. Baker 
Harris, P.G.M. gave a brief history of the Grand Lodge, 
F.A.A.M. of the District of Columbia. He showed that Free- 
masonry has not only existed in the National Capital from 
the vei-y first days, but it actively and Dublicly participated 
in the founding events. The narrator went on: 

"It was more than a decade thereafter before the Lodges 
within the Federal District determined to foi-m their own 
Grand Lodge, The records show that the Brethren were 
most reluctant to sever their ties with the Grand Lodge of 
Maryland. Finally in 1811, with the bleissing and assistance 
of the Mother Grand Lodge, the Grand Lodge of the Distridt 
of Columbia was organized and has had continuovis life to 
the present day. From 5 lodges and a few hundred members 
it has grown to 48 Lodges with some 25,000 members, all 
within the District's small geograp'hical area of only 69 square 
miles. 

"As early as 1815 the Grand Lodge of the District of 
Columbia was invited to lay the cornerstone of historic St. 
John's Church on Lafayette Square, across from the White 
HoUise. Thereafter, our Grand Lodge during the 19th and 
this 20th century has been invited to lay scores of comer- 
stones of public buildings, institutional buildings, churches 
and monuments, located in all parts of the Federal District. 
This has given our Grand Lodge a uninue and literal tie with 
the physical growth of our National Capital." 

The observance of the Celebration took a four-fold char- 
acter. First an evening of entertainment, to welcome guests 
from Grand Lodges throughout the United States and Canada: 
secondly, a service of thanksgiving in the Washington 
Cathedral; thirdly, a dinner for Grand Lodge Officers, past 
and present, Masters and Wardens and their wives; and the 
bringing of the History of Grand Lodge up to date.

The Notice of the Quarterly Meeting to be held on March

16 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the Grand Register and that eigihteen Lodges had been 
warranted since December 13, 1961. The list again shows 
the wide range of the United Grand Lodge of England for 
Lodges were warranted in Transvaal and Ghana. 

At the June Quarterly Communication the Grand Master 
announced tiiat a Warrant had been granted to St, George 
Lodge, No. 7763 which was the first Englisih Lodge to be 
formed in Nyasaland. 

The Board of General Purposes emphasized (that so- 
called "Masonic" Tours had no official sanction. They also 
drew attention to the practice of inserting into advertise- 
ments or circulars references or phrases which could hardly 
fail to convey to the initiated reader that they were written 
by Freemasons and designed to catch the eye of PYeemasons. 
The practice, they declared, is liable to bring Masonry into 
disrepute and contraverces a Grand Lodge ruling. 

The Grand Lodge recognized the Grand Lodge of South- 
em Africa. This Grand Lodge was formed when the Nether- 
landic Lodges in South Africa broke away from the Grand 
East of the Netherlands. The first Grand Master, bearing 
a most distinguished South African name, is M.W. Bro. Ck>l. 
C. Graham Botha. He was installed in Cape Town on April 
22. There are 246 Lodges in South Africa on the Roll of the 
United Grand Lodge of England. The rights of the United 
Grand Lodge of England are preserved and there is nothing 
to prevent that Grand Lodge from giving Warrants for new 
Lodges in South Africa should they see fit to do so. 

The Grand Lodges of Ireland and Scotland also have 
accorded recognition to this new Grand Lodge. 

The Quarterly Communication, September 13, received a 
report concerning India. In 1960 a Committee was formed in 
India at the instance of the Grand Masters of Ireland, 
Scotland and England to consider what steps should be taken 
to establish an independent Grand Lodgpe of India. The 
Committee recommended that Lodges of all three Constitu- 
tions be asked to express their views by ballot. The results 
showed that ninety-six English Lodges and a substantial 
number from the other two Constitutions wished to join the 
new Grand Lodge. 

November 24, 1961, was the date fixed for the establish- 
ment of the new Grand Lodge and the installation of its 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. H. H. The Nawab of Rampur, 
P.G.W. 

It is the intentdon of the Grand Mastor not to warrant 
any further English Lodges within the territory occupied by 
the new Grand Lodge. 

The Board of General Purposes with regret took leave 
of the ninety-six Lodges which had been in some cases for 
many years, a distinguished element of English Freemasonry.

FLORTOA— 1961 

132nd Annual Communication — April 18-20 

Grand Master, 1960-61 — M.W. Bro. J. E. Larson 
Grand Master, 1961-62 — M.W. Bro. F. G. McQueen 

Lodges, 285. Membership, 68,551. Gain, 1,366. 

The official designation of the Grand Lodge is The Most 
Worsihiipful Grand Lodge F. & A. M. of the State of Florida. 
All seventeen li\nng Past Grand Masters attended the open- 
ing proceedings. During the year two Past Grand Masters 
died. One M.W. Bra. S. Caldwell, Grand Master in 1929-30, 
was stricken while delivering the Grand Oration, in 1960. 
Another severe loss came through the death of R.W. Bro. G. 
W. Huff who had retired during the year after serving as 
Grand Secretary for twenty-three years. 

Feeling the need for a school for Lodge Secretaries, the 
Grand Master appointed a special committee to organize one. 
The "pilot" school sio far exceeded all expectations that a 
second was held during the year and the committee recom- 
mended that the incoming Grand Masiter authorize three in 
various sections of the State. 

Subjects were selected to cover all phases of the duties 
of the Lodge Secretary. Many of the responsibilities have to 
do with applications for admission to Masonic Homes, which 
would not be applicable in Jurisdictions where there are_ no 
homes. Other subjects covered had a universal application: 
Relations witJi other Grand Jurisdictions; Masonic Etiquette; 
Lodge Room Decorum; Grand Officer Reception; Grand 
Lodge Returns; etc. The assumption is that the Secretary 
ustialiy has a long tenure of office and if he is well informed 
he can be of invaluable assistance to his fellow Lodge 
Officers and brethren. 

Also in the line of education the Chairman of the 
Masonic Education Committee undertook a study of all the 
Masonic Education booklets as well as various Handbooks 
and reprinted all in revised form. 

Feeling the need for an official Masonic publication 
which would afford an oppotunity to the Grand Master and 
the Grand Lodge Officers to convey messages to the Craft, 
the Grand Master appointed a Special Committee to assist 
in the publication of "The Flo-rida Mason." The experiment 
proved to be most successful in achieving its purpK>se. 

An original proposal was put foi-ward by the Brethren 
of Leesburg Lodge, No. 58. They suggested that they build 
a facsimile of King Solomon's Temple to promote the ad- 
vancement of Masonry in Florida. The city of Leesburg 



18 GRAND LOEKJE OF CANADA 

agreed to provide the site. The record does not say whether 
the facsimile is to be life size or a reduced scale model. It 
will be interesting to learn how the project succeeds. 

During the year various Grand Lodge officers laid nine 
comer-stones. One of these was for a Junior High School 
and another an Appellate Court Building. 

The five year planning committee presented a full report 
on the possibilities regarding the erection of a new Grand 
Lodge Building. 

The Committee on arrangements of Grand Lodge Pro- 
ceedings advanced the opinion that the proceedings of the 
Grand Lodge had, in recent years, been carried on with too 
much haste. In S'tating the view, the Committee gave a brief 
but clear account of the extraordinary development of the 
Grand Lodge during thirty years. 

"For instance, the same time is allotted now for the 
annual Grand Communication as was allotted 30 years ago 
at the Grand Centennial Communication in Tallahassee. At 
that time Master Masons in Florida numbered approximately 
30,000; since then the membership has more than doubled. 
At that all the financial transactions of the Grand Lodge 
totaled less than $100,000.00. At that time, the Grand Lodge 
had just succeeded in selling $200,000.00 worth of bonds to 
put the Grand Lodge in a solvent condition. Today our annual 
budget is many times what it was 30 years ago and our ag- 
gregate resources amount to approximately $4,000,000.00. 
The necessaiy increase in committee work and paper work 
during the annual Grand Communication has almost obliter- 
ated real discussion on the floor of the Grand Lodge and real 
participvation in Grand Lodge Proceedings by the rank and 
file. In our opinion this is not sound and healthy. Haste 
makes waste; and 'in the multitude of counselors there is 
safety'; and we believe that more participation in the work 
of the Grand Lodge by the rank and file is most desirable." 

Undoubtedly the most trying episode experienced in any 
Grand Jurisdiction in 1961 was that reported by the Grand 
Master. He received a letter from Most Worshipful Dr. 
Juan Jose Tarajano Gonzalez. Grand Master of Masons in 
Cuba, saying that he, his family, the Grand Secretary and 
Grand Treasurer were in exile in Miami. After setting up a 
committee the Grand Master met with Brethren from Cuba 
and learned that the records, paraphernalia, membership list 
and other records of the Grand Lodge of Cuba had been 
seized and confiscated by the civil authorities of Cuba and 
that the Grand Master and other officers had had to flee for 
their lives. 

Later the Grand Master received a petition from the 
Grand Master of Cuba for permission to reside in the Grand 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 19 

Jurisdiction of Florida and to conduct the affairs of the 
Grand Lodge of Cuba and take whatever action might be 
suitable and appropriate. 

The request was unusual but the Grand Master of 
Florida acceded to the petition and authorized and permitted 
the Grand Master of Cuba and Grand Lodge of Cuba to 
reside within the boundaries of the Grand Lodge of Florida 
and "to take such official and fraternal action in Masonic 
affairs as is appropriate under the circumstances to the same 
extent and in full measure as they would or could within 
the boundaries of the Grand Jurisdiction of Cuba." 

Altogether, the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of 
Florida provide a full and varied record revealing the work 
of a fine Grand Lodge. 

IDAHO— 1961

Grand Master, 1961-62 — M.W. Bro. C. W. Simmons 

Lodes, 84. Membership, 14,916. Gain, 23. 

The Proceedings open with the full name of the Grand 
Lodge which is described as the Most Worshipful Grand 
Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Idaho. 

Among the ten rulings of the Grand Master two were of 
more than usual interest. The first dealt with the question 
as to whether or not a candidate who had the E. A. Degree 
and then had the misfortune to break his leg which was still 
in a cast could proceed. The Grand Master ruled that if he 
was otherwise proficient permission should be granted, with 
due caution being taken under the circumstances. The second 
request came fix)m Weiser Lodge No. 23 for permission to 
spend $2,500.00 for a new carpet. The Grand Master was 
pleased to concur and added his congratulations on the finan- 
cial condition of the Lodge. Actually the Lodge is not a 
large one, having 181 members. The annual dues are $6.00. 
There is a Lodge which must enjoy excellent management. 

The Grand Lodge convened in Pocatello, Idaho, for the 
purpose of laying the cornerstone of a fine new public library. 
The Grand Master concluded "This is the sort of thing we 
need to do more often. The beautiful ceremony no-t only pro- 
vides incentive for the profane, but strengthens our Masonic 
reputation throughout the land," 

The Grand Master issued two proclamations to the 
Lodges in his Grand Jurisdiction. The first suggested that 



20 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

a programme or programmes, open to the public and held 
in some place readily accessible to the public, should be 
planned to emphasiize the history, origins and interpretation 
of the provisions of the Constitution. Tlie second proclaimed 
a public school week during which bretiiren were to be en- 
couraged to visit the public sdiools of the State. 

The Grand Secretary reported a very definite drop in 
losses from N.P.D. He, rightly, took this as an encouraging 
sign and added "it is our belief that with a little work and 
some personal contacts we can almost eliminate this type of 
loss from our Lodges." 

The Grand Historian gave an address devoted to the 
meaning of the names Lodges derived from Indian words. 
Surprisingly, he found that one name many thought to be 
Indian acttially is Mormon: Lemhi, No. 11. Others, o<bviously 
are French, derived from names brought to Idaho by French 
Canadian fur-traders. The excellent paper suggests the 
possibility of a similar study of the names of the Grand 
Register of Canada. Certainly, Idaho does not seem to have 
names to equal Penewobikong, No. 487 or Kaministiquia, 
No. 5S4. 

The Grand Master spoke at the dedication of a new 
Masonic Temple and the Grand Orator at the laying of a 
cornerstone of a public library. Each gave a full account of 
the cerem'ony which his hearers had witnessed. The former 
told of the occasion on August 1, 1636, when "a view" was 
taken by one of the Masons of the Company, on the completion 
of the "Church of St. Olave in the old Jury," after which the 
members attended a banquet to celebrate the event. The 
latter said in part: "You may be surprised to learn that 
the precedents in America for inviting a Grand Lodge to lay 
the cornerstone of a public building extend back over two 
hundred years, and much earlier than that in the British 
Isles, and the practice of laying cornerstones or foundation 
stones was inherited by speculative Freemasonry from medi- 
eval and far more ancient times." 

A reader of the Proceedings is left with the impression 
•that Freemasonry in Idaho is in a live and active condition.

put the severe shrinkage of membersihip in its proper per- 
spective. 

"Ag-ain Illinois shows a growing loss in membership. 
This loss does not mean that Masonry is on the down grade 
in all departmenft®. Nor does it mean that all lodges are 
graduially weakening. 

"A great part of the loss is in the numher of deaths wi.th 
which we are faced each year and which we cannot controL 
A part of the loss is due to conditions in certain sections of 
dtie® which show such a deterioration that Temples are not 
in desirable locations. This condition will continue and lodges 
will be forced out of business or into a consolidation. A 
number of lodges have petitioned to move into more desirable 
locations and in most instances permission has been 
granted. . . , 

"This loss in membership does not reflect the true picture 
of Masonry^ in Illinois. During the past two years it haa 
been the pleasure of the Grand Lodge to convene in occasional 
meetings many times for the purpose of laying cornerstones 
and dedicating halls. As Grand Master, I have presided 
at 8 cornerstone ceremonies and 14 dedications. On the oc- 
casion of each cornerstone ceremony, there has been a great 
thrill in noting the interest of lodge members in the erection 
of a home. Many temples have been built with the member- 
ship furnashing a great percentage of the labor. In each 
case, Masonry can be extremely proud of the buildings 
erected and the beautiful interiors. One of the great thrills 
I experienced was on the occaision of the laying of the corner- 
stone of the new addition to the Masonic Temple at Spring- 
field, our State Capitol. This addition is to be kno-\vn as the 
Scottish Rite Cathedral and is for the use of all the Masonic 
bodies of Springfield. A project of well over a million dollars 
which will be devoid of any debt when completed. A dedicar 
tio<n ceremony is to be held in 1962." 

The Grand Jurisdiction suffered a severe loss through 
the death of M.W. Bro. R. C. Davenport, elected Grand Master 
in 1924 at the age of 38. He was' appointed Grand Secretary 
in 1.^28. elected in 1929 and continued to serve in the office 
until his death, Januarv 31, 1961. The newly appointed 
Grand Secretary is M.W. Bro. E. L. Lawrence, P.G.M,, who 
aJ'So does a superb piece of work as Chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Masonic Correspondence. As Chairman he writes 
the Fraternal Re'vaews. 

The 57th annuial report of the Illinois Masonic Home at 
Sullivan told of a full year. Membership totalled 299. At- 
tached to the Home is a flourishing Holstein dairy herd. The 
farm also produces more pigs than can be used in the Home. 



22 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Most of the beef eaten is also raised on the farm. The cost 
for each member cared for at the Home each day is approx- 
imately $4.60. 

The Board of Managers of the Illinois Masonic Childrens' 
Home submitted their seventy-sixth annual report. There 
were 41 children residing in the Home. At Christmas the 
Governor of the State, a member of the Craft, visited the 
Home \\'ith his family. 



INDIANA— 1961 

144th Annual Communication — May 16-17 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. J. H. Jefferson 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. H. S. Jackson 

Lodges, 547. Membership, 184,898. Loss, 112. 

The Proceedings of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge 
of Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Indiana are a 
joy to read. The Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. D\\'ight L. 
Smith (Grand Master, 1945-46,) presents a statement more 
complete than can generally be found. Twenty pages give a 
historical table of all the Lodges which have ever been 
chartered in Indiana, showing how and when they were 
organized and when they received their charters. An ex- 
planation as to what happened to all extinct Lodges is 
included. The list shows that there have been 741 Lodges 
in Indiana. 

For fourteen years the Grand Secretary also has re\iewed 
the Proceedings of other Grand Lodges. He does this by 
subject and not by Grand Lodges. Thus if one is interested 
in Grand Lodge Temples and Office Buildings or Masonic 
Homes he needs only to look for the subject. From the 
many entries under some of the heading? it would seem 
chat little of the factual material recorded in sixty-eight 
Proceedings can have been omitted. 

No fewer than six of the ten Lodges chartered at the 
Grand Lodge on May 30, 1860, celebrated their centennials 
"in 1960. In 1861 seven Lodges were chartered of which 
six are still active. Five of the seven chartered in 1862 are 
still active. The figures are notable as those were trying 
days in the United Sates. In 1960 one new Lodge was 
consecrated and constituted. 

During the year tAvo Lodges suffered from disastrous 
fires. It is interesting to note that the Volume of the Sacred 
Law was not damaged in either case although otherwise the 
losses were almost complete. The fires, the Grand Master 



FRA.TBIiNAL CORRESPONDENCE 23 

poiii'ted out, demonsbrate the need for sufficient insurance 
ocverage which sihauld be ample in these days of hig'h 
replacement costs. 

The Grand Lodge Committee on dual membership re- 
ported that a study revealed many problems arising from 
the sihifting of the population. Some of their findings, which 
probably hold true of other States and Canadian Provinces, 
have not generally received much notice. The first pomt 
made by the Committee is- that eveiy year twenty per cent 
of the country's population changes its address. On this 
basis one out of every five Masons can be expected to move, 
in the same period to a different neighbourhood, city or state. 
When dual memberehip is not permitted the Masion is faced 
with the decision of whether to retain membership in his 
original Lodge or to seek affiliation with one in his new 
home. The Committee might have added that, apart from 
the question of dual membership, one fifth of those other- 
wise qualified to be candidates surrender their residential 
qualifications for a year by moving. 

Another significant point made by the Committee is that 
in the peiiod from 192^ to 1939, the U.S. birth rate was 
twenty per cent less than the average for the rest of the 
twentieth century. As a result there was a dip in the 
population now represented by the age group 22 to 32. Here 
may be a partial explanation of the decline in new members 
in recent years. 

The "exploding population" and development of long 
strips of built up areas also should be considered, now, when 
siting new Masonic Temples. Altogether, the Committee 
produced a most thought-provoking report. 

The Ritual Committee recommended that the flag of 
the United States "should not be used in the opening or 
closing ceremonies of a Masonic meeting other than to occupy 
ite position of honor in the East." The recommendation 
was adopted. 

IOWA— 1961 

117th Annual Communication — September 20-21 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. E. B. Delzell 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. L. C. Eddy 

Lodges, 546. Membership, 92,641. Loss, 953. 

This Grand Lodge has the word Ancient in its name and 
is officiallv described as The Grand Lodge of I"owa, A. F. & 
A. M. 

The Grand Master's programme included five objectives; 
a campadgn for safety on the highways, the feasibility of 



24 GBANiD LODGE OF CANADA 

establisihiiig a home for boys, a meetin'g in each Lodg« on or 
near February 22 emphasizuig the life of Bro. George Wash- 
ington, a "reobligation nighit to be held in eadi lodge or 
group of lodges," and at least two fellowship nights to be 
held in each Lodge providing attractive programmes for 
non-Masons and a night to include ladies. 

Among the Beyerai recommendiations of the Gramid 
Majster were; Support a still greater effort toward Ritual- 
istic proficiency and Masonic Education at the lodge level, 
study seriously whether or not Masonry is not too cheap in 
one's Lodge, and that the brethren extend the band of 
charity and friendship before resorting to tjie whip of 
susi>ensdon. 

Of five cornerstones laid during the year one was for 
a post office, one for a high school and one for a federal 
building. 

As usual the Library report was excellent. No fewer 
than 4,267 persons sign^ed the guest register during the year. 
An average attendance of about 150 readers each working 
day of the year suggests that the collections must be ex- 
tremely rich. The accounts show a disbursement of $6,500 
for microfilming valuable books and papers. _ Here is a 
worthwhile project wihich might well be widely imitated. 

The Grand Lodge supports the Masonic Sanitorium at 
Bettendorf which "is designed and is used for the care of 
those Masons' and their dependents who by reason of their 
necessities and infirmities cannot be otherwise properly 
cared for." During the year, the Sanitorium served a total 
of 64 patients. 

In addition the Grand Lodsre, through trustees, has con- 
structed and is operating a home for worthy and needy 
Masons provided by the will of Bro. Herman L. Rowley who 
bequeathed $150,000 for the purpose. The home is named 
the Rowley Memorial Home and is located at Perry, Iowa. 
Major expansion is planned. 



IRELAND— 1961 

Annual Report of the St. John's Day Meeting and the 
Annual Communication of Grand Lodge, held in 
Belifast in October. 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. Raymond F. Brooke 

As the Grand Master felt unable to face the great strain 
of the St. John's Day Meeting, the Deputy Grand Master, 
II.W. Bro. George S. Gamble, was in the Chair. It is custom- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 25 

aay. on that day, for the Grand Master to give a report on 
the progress of Irish Masonry. 

The Deputy Grand Master reported: 

"It has heen necessary during the year to make a lot of 
alterations to the Laws of Grand Lodge to bring them into 
line with the changing positions as regards Dominions and 
Colonies. These were passed at the Meeting of Grand Lodge 
in December, and I wouild mention that the lion's share in 
this work was done by our Grand Master, with of course the 
assistance of the Grand Registrar. 

"One of the notable events of the year was the Constitu- 
tion of the New Grand Lodge of Southern Africa. This was, 
shall I say, a breakaway from the Netherlandic Constitution 
and caused us some anxiety at fii^. However, their Declar- 
ation of Principles and assurances they have given made us 
happy as to the position of our own Lodges in South Africa, 
and we were able %vith confidence to agree to their request 
for recognition and exchange of Representatives. 

"The Reports of all the Provincial Grand Masters show 
the verA.' healthy state of Irish Masonry throughout the 
Provinces, and as time is getting short I would not care to 
single out any particular items for special mention. 

"The Report from the Grand Secretary of Instruction 
shows the keen interest that is being taken in the Ritual not 
only in Dublin and Belfast but also in the Pro\dnces. 

"The Report from the Secretary of the Benevolent Insti- 
tutions is also satisfactory." 

The reports from Provincial Grand Lodges in many parts 
of the world are particularly interesting. For example, R.W. 
Bro. Lt. Col. W. D. Adendorff of South Africa, Northern, 
told of the Annual Combined Mas'onic Church Service, attend- 
ed by approximately 1,500 Brethren of the four Constitutions 
in the Province. 

R.W. Bro. G. J. Thomson, Southern Cape Province wrote: 
"The past year has been one of progi-ess in my Province with 
a steady flow of desirable candidates. Despite the difficult 
times we are passing through, my Deputy and I had the 
company of 25 of our local Brethren on our annual 700 mile 
journey" to Port Elizabeth and East London to carr^^ out the 
Installations in our two Lodges there." 

The Masonic Benevolent Institutions include a Masonic 
Girls' School, a Masonic Boys' School, and an Annuities Fund, 
with 312 on the register. Although no summary of Lodges 
and membership is given, by adding the Lodges on the list 
of payments to Grand Lodge, it would appear that there are 
839 Lodges oi; the Grand Register.

Lodges, 17. Membership, 2,766. Gain, 144. 

The guest speaker was M.W. Bro. Sadaichi Horiuchi, 
P.G.M. He stated that it is now twelve years since some of 
the Lodges commenced their work and later incorporated 
into this Grand Jurisdiction which began its functions nearly 
four years ago. These Lodges are seriously looking inito 
the future prospects of Masonry in Japan. 

Most of his remarks were devoted to a description of 
itihe activities of the Board of Trustees of the Zaidan Hojin, 
Tokyo Masonic Association. The financial position of the 
AssiQciation is sound and they hold some of the most valuable 
land in Tokyo. But the speaker reminded his hearers, "We 
must remember that the legal object of the Zaidan Hojin is 
one of charity in addition to the promotion of fraternal 
facilities." 

The Grand Master reported that the Fraternity in Japan 
is in a healthy state, sound financially and rich in spirit and 
experience. 

KANSAS— 1961 

105th Anntial Communication — March 8-9 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bro. R. W. Kinzie 
Girand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. J. H. Murray 

Lodges, 439. Membership, 99,177. Loss, 867. 

The Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons 
of Kansas met in Wichita. Attendance was better than in 
I960 though 96 Lodges were not represented. 

The Grand Master for 1961-62, M.W. Bro. John H. 
Murray, is among the youngest to hold office in the history 
of the Grand Lodge of Kansas, having been bom in 1914. 
However, he has a solid background. The thirty-ninth at- 
torney to become Grand Master, he has served eight years 
in the State Legislature as a Representative and four years 
as State Senator. He is now serving his second year term 
as a Senator. 

Kansas is one of the States where the laying of Comer- 
stones is still popular. In addition to ceremonies connected 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENOE 27 

with Lodge buildings, Camerstones (or foundation stones as 
they are called in three cases, where from the pictures the 
sibome does not appear to be at a comer) were laid art; a Court 
House, a field house at a school, a new school, a post office 
and federal building and a new library on the campus of 
Baker University. 

During the year two Lodges were consolidated. The 
membership had dwindled, reflecting the changing agricult- 
ural pattern of the region. Small communities find it hard 
to exist as fewer families are required to work the faTTus 
where operations are becoming larger. 

Five Lodges held centennials. But, the Grand Master 
pointed out, there will not be many celebrations of this kind 
during the next few years as, obviously, the Civil War a 
century ago disrupted Masonic activity. Other Grand Masters, 
particularly in the South, told how the war between the 
States prevented the organization of Lodges. Each of the 
five Lodges that observed centennials deserved commen- 
dation for originality in their planning. The Grand Master 
offered two most sound words of advice to those who planned, 
observance of their lodge annivers^aries "Start early." 

One paragraph in connection with installations stands 
out in the Grand Master's Address. "The installation at 
Winfield Lodge Nio. 110 was open to the public. The cere- 
mony of installation contains so many of the beautiful 
doctrines of Freemasonry it is certainly worthy of presen«- 
tation to the families of Masons and to those who do not 
belong to the Fraternity. 1 recommend that more of our 
Lodges have public installations." 

Last year, these Reviews reported that there was some 
concern over the fact that attendanre at the Annual Com- 
munications of Grand Lodge had been poor. Indeed, in 1960, 
when the weather was most unfavourable, the total attend- 
ance dix)pped to 778 with only 288 Lodges repi-esented and 
152 not represented. The year 19fil saw a marked improve- 
ment. Attendance rose to 1,004 with 343 Lodges represent- 
ed and 96 not represented. In 1960 a by-law was adopted 
providing that disciplinary action might be invoked if a 
Lodge is not officially represented for three consecutive 
years. Grand Lodge provides a mileage and per diem 
allowance. 

Tlie Grand Master recommended that every Lodge in 
the Grand Jurisdiction regularly apix)int a chaplain, hitherto 
not a requisite in the Constitution. He also recommended a 
definition of the duties of the Committee on Temple Building 
and Remodeling: to "act in an ad\'isorj' capacity to the 
Grand Master upon all matters pertaining to the sale or 
purchase of property, the construction of buildings, and major 



28 GEAND LODGE OF CANADA 

remodeling of Masonic Buildings including the financing of 
such projects. It shall be the duty of this commiittee to 
study all plans and projects which may be referred to them 
by the Grand Maslter," and to report on them.

The Grand Lodge of the State of Louisiana, F. & A.M. 
met in Emergent Communication on February 4 to conduct 
a Pilgrimiage to the various statues and portraits of famo-us 
Masonic patriots in New Orleans, The roster of names lists 
many persons distinguished in American history but possibly 
less well-kniown in Canada for thedr connection with Free- 
masonry. 

The statue of Benjamin Franklin stands in Lafayette 
Square. He was initiated in Philadelphia in 1730 and was 
installed as Grand Master of Pennsylvania in 1734 only four 
years after he became a Master Mason. 

Henry Clay is another great American patriot whose 
statue stands in Lafayette Square. He was Grand Master 
of Kentucky in 1820-21. Clay was honest and forthright and 
his view of Masonry was sincere but realistic. On one oc- 
casion he stated: "It (Masonry) does more good than harm', 
although it does not practically affect all that it theoretically 
promises. I would not denounce and formally renounce it 
to be made President of the United States." It might be 
added that it was Henry Clay who declared "I would rather 
be right than President." 

A third Grand Master recognized was Andrew Jackson, 
of Tennessee. His statue stands in Jackson Square. His 
early Masonic career is mot clear. But he was Grand Master 
of Tennessee, 1822 and 1823. In 1825 Jackson introduced 
the Marquis de Lafayette to the Grand Lodge of Tennessee — 
on his last visit to the United States. Lafayette was received 
in a special session of the Grand Lodges of every state ihe 
visited. His jwrtrait hangs at the Cabildo in New Orleans. 

Other distinguished Masons including Albert Pike were 
honoured. The Pilgrimage ended at the statue of George 
Wasihiington. At each picture or statue a wreath was laid 
and an appropriate address given. 

The Grand Orator in the course of his official address 
told a story which portrays well the aims and spirit of the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 29 

Fraternity. It concerned the death of a Northern naval 
odEfioex who had expressed a wish to be bxiried on land with 
Masonic Rites. But since the shore was still in Southern 
hand® it was necessary to carry the request under a flag of 
truce. The difficulties faced by the Southern Masons and 
their efforts on behalf of a brother in arms against them pro- 
vided a moving' tale. 

The Sesquicentennial year was marked by the publication 
of a history of Masonry in Louisiana. The project was a 
long cherished dream of the Committee on History, The 
Committee concluded: "Every Mason in the State has made 
a contribution toward the production of this work. It is to 
be hoped every Mason will find opportunity to read it." 



MAINE— 1961

Grand Master. 1960-62— M.W. Bro. L. M. Sanbom 

Lodges, 208. Membership, 47,829. Gain, 24. 

When the Most Worshipfud Grand Lodge of Ancient 
Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Maine opened, 
the American and Canadian flags were presented. Verses 
from America, God Save the Queen and Two Countries by the 
Sea were sung. 

The Grand Master in reporting on the Condition of the 
Paternity declared: "I find the general overall condition 
healthy. Most lodges and most districts show good interest 
and activity. 

"This good interest and activity seems to be most 
prevalent in those lodges where the officers with the help 
of the Past Masters under the leadership of a hard working 
Worshipful Master present planned programs and promote 
fellowsihip. 

"Masonry is based ui)on true and, often, tried fine 
principles and sound philosophy. There is nothing ^^'Tong 
with these principles and philosophy. There is notJuiig 
wrong with Masonry that clear, deep thinkmg and plain hard 
work will not correct." 

The Grand Master stressed the great importance of 
keeping Masonic Temples in good condition and the grounds 
aix)und neat and clean. Resident of a to^™ <>r «ty should 
be able to point with pride to any Masonic Hall as an out- 
standing part of the community. 

Under dispensations, the Grand Master reported that 
hie had refused many requests for permission to transfer 



30 GRAND LOEKJE OF CANADA 

candidates from their own lodges for the conferriuig of 
degrees. He refused all of these "believing that a candidate 
is entitled to receive his degrees in his own lodge. Also, 
that the members of his lodge are entitled to see him receive 
his degrees in his own lodge." 

He also recommended that I'adge dues be sufficient to 
take care of the normal operating expenses of the lodge 
without having to use initiation fees and other income for 
that purpose. 

In some lodges, the Grand Master was surprised to find 
that Secretaries were sending notices only to members living 
close to hand. He pointed out that all members in good 
standing should receive notices and furthermore that mem- 
bei^ of other lodges residing in the jurisdiction of a lodge 
might also be put on the mailing list. 

The Grand Master made one thought-provoking obser- 
vation: "I find very few oi the lodges protected by liability 
insurance. If an accident should occur and a member or 
visitor injured or sickness resulted from the consumption of 
food or beverages, the lodge or any individual member or 
members of the lodge could be sued ... I recommend that this 
Grand Lodge pass a Standing Regulation requiring each 
and every lodge to provide liability insurance to properly 
protect the lodge and its members." It would be interesting 
to know how applicable such observations would be in other 
American states or in Canadian provinces." 

Orchard Lodge, No. 215, visited and was visited by 
Zetland Lodge. No. 12, Montreal. The Grand Master attend- 
ed Canadian-American Day, at Old Orchard. Masonic ties 
between Canada and the United States evidently are clos'e 
in the region. The Grand Master attended no fewer than 
seven hundredth anniversaries of lodges and a committee 
meeting regarding the "200th Anniversary. Portland." 

The Grand Lecturer noted a great decline in requests 
for pe^rmission to use "special charges" in connection with 
the M.M. Degree. He v.^as gratified as the trend indicated 
a greater appreciation of the time-honoured charges. 

The Grand Lecturer also stressed the need for dignity 
and decoi-um in degree work. He was disturbed by rumours 
of infractions which indicated that some Officers and breth- 
ren had lost sight of the impressive lessons of Masoniy. He 
premised that if an infraction is discovered "it will be dealt 
with with dispatch." 

The Special Committee on the Organization of Masonry 
in Maine i-eported that in 1962 Freemasonry will complete 
the second hundred years of existence in the State. Only 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 31 

a few Masonic bodies throughout the United States can claim 
such a distinction. Massachusetts, the Mother Lodge of 
Maine, dates back to 1733, sixteen yeare after the formation 
of the Grand Lodge of England. Only a few othere date back 
to the early 1700's. Plans are under way for a fitting cele- 
bration. 

The Committee on Condition of the Fraternity reported 
that the membership in Grand Lodge had showed a very 
slight increase. The fact that the population of Maine shows 
little chanjge from year to year makes this a sound situation. 
In addition Maine already has "one of, if not the highest 
percentages of Masons in the country." Thus if the Lwlges 
are to maintain quality the gains must be modest. "It is 
far more important that strength be gained through quality 
than to weaken the strong fabric of our fraternity by rais- 
ing less than well qualified applicants." 

M.W. Bro. R. J. Pollard, Chairman of the Committee on 
Correspondence, issued a special report on membei"ship which 
stated that the problem of attendance was not new. Bro. 
Pollard added: "It has been with us for a long time, and, 
by now, Freemasonry should be accustomed to living \\'ith it. 
It was a problem in the olden days, when so many of our 
Maine brethren were away at sea, working in the big woods, 
or holding down a job 'up in Boston'. It was a problem 
when the writer first became a Mason, more than forty years 
ago, and it was still a problem when he later served as 
Master of his lodge. It is a pi'oblem today, and in all prob- 
ability, it will be a problem in the year 2,000. 

"It has long been noted that this problem is more pro- 
nounced in our larger lodges. Personally, we feel that this 
problem is probably inherent in our American system of 
large lodges and rela;tively Low dues. It is one of the prices 
we must pay for bigness and cheapness. Our English breth- 
ren, ^\'ith their small lodges, do not have this problem, but 
they do pay a great deal more for the pri\'ilege of lodge mem- 
bership. Probably the best long-range cure for this problem 
will be found in more and smaller lodges, whei-e more 
brethren can really be put to work and where a wanner 
and more intimate fraternal spirit can develop. 

"We do not feel that the situation is quite as bad as 
some of the statistics would indicate. Figures do not always 
tell ithe whole story. Every lodge, for instance, has a number 
of non-resident members. In some cases, this is a very 
sizable group. T5iere are the older and physically disabled 
brethren, who cannot possibly attend lodge. And. in every 
comimunity, we find men whose hours of employment make 
it impossible for them to be present at a meeting. In fair- 



32 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

ness, these groups should all be deducted when, percenitagea 
are being- figured. 

"But, after making all allowances, the situiation is still 
bad enoug'h." 

While the Proceedings of all Grand Lodges provide re- 
warding- reading matter few are as rich as tiie Proceedings 
of the Grand Lodge of Maine. Furthermore, few are as 
attractively or as clearly printed.

Lodges, 121. Membership. 16,255. Loss, 103. 

When Grand Lodge opened twenty Past Grand Masters 
•vrere present. In point of years M.W. Bro. A. J. Hatcher 
was senior, having been Grand Master in 1920. 

The Report of the Board of General Purposes dealt with 
many important topics. Particular reference was made to 
the work of a special Committee operating under the name 
of the Masonic Appraisal Committee. The purpose of the 
Committee is to solve the problem caused by iJie Constitution 
which sets the income of Grand Lodge at a per capita fee. 
One result has been a "growing state of paralysis in the 
function? of Grand Lodge." 

The Committee felt that its work would be more effec- 
tive if its responsibilities were enlarged. The Board concurred 
and the body has already made several recommendations. 
Notice of motion has been given to amend the Constitution so 
that each Annual Budget of the General Fund will be pre- 
sented to the Annual Communication for approval. All mem- 
"bers of Grand Lodge will thus have an opportunity to ex- 
amine the proposed expenditures which in turn will set the 
per capita fee. 

That many Lodges recognize the problems of Grand 
Lodge was evinced by the action of several which voluntarily 
increased the per capita fee. Flin Flon Lodge with a total 
membership of 205 made a donation of S200. 

During the year M.W. Bro. R. E. Emmett came on a 
great volume of old records in the Grand Lodge store room. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 33 

Now that the records have come to light the hope is to secure 
a fireproof depository for their preservation. 

The Grand Secretary reported that the average fee is 
$61.50 and dues $11.30 and added "Comparing these stat- 
istics with those reported two years ago, indicates that while 
increasing costs bring about adjustments in fees and dues, 
itiie cost to each individual member remains at a very low 
figure." 

The Grand Master described his travels to Lodges situ- 
ated in Manitoba's Northland. Lynn Lake, Flin Flon, The 
Pas and Churchill were on the itinerary. He said in part: 
"The trip from The Pas to Churchill was most interest- 
ing and pleasant. The weather was clear and provided per- 
fect vdsibility of just what our North Country looks like 
from the air . . . The warmth of welcome and hospitality 
we met on arrival has to be experieced to be rightly appreci- 
ated. Masonry' has good leadership in this northern outpost 
and its influence is making its proper contribution in the 
development of this community. The meeting was well at- 
tended and the brethren are enthusiastic in their work. The 
weather was good to us and we were able to cross the river 
and visit the Old Fort as well as Sloop's Cove where Samuel 
Heame spent a winter about two centuries ago." 

The Grand Lodge, at the invitation of the Board of 
TTustees. laid the comer-stone of Vincent Massey Collegiate 
in Fort Garry. 

The Grand Historian gave his twenty-first address to 
Grand Lodge. This year he completed, or made great pro- 
gress in his efforts to find, information regarding the pion- 
eers who "unfurled the banner of Freemasonry" in what was 
destined to become the Pro\ance of Manitoba. He now has a 
great deal of personal information on every officer and charter 
member at the institution of Old Northern Light Lodge where 
a DispensaJtion was issued by the Grand Lodge of Minnesota. 
The fir?t meeting was in 1864. M.W. Bro. William Douglas, 
the Grand Historian, is to be congratulated on the success of 
his excellent research, which will, undoubtedly, be greatly 
used in 1964, the centennial year. 

The Committee on the Condition of Freemasonry re- 
ported in part: "In the rural areas the attendance at Lodge 
meetings is, generally, being fairly well maintained. How- 
ever, in the urban parts of the Jurisdiction little or no im- 
provement is evident in this respect."

The 175th anniversary of ithe! Grand Lodge A.F. & A.M. 
of Maryland was recognized with a brief history in the Pro- 
ceedings, wintten by M.W. Bro. Daniel Hope, P.G.M. Various 
records and news items indicate that Masonic Lodges existed 
in Maryland as early as the year 1750, some chartered by 
the Modem Grand Lodge of England, some by the Grand 
Lodge of Massachusetts, and several by the Grand Lodge of 
Pennsylvania. It was not until after the surrender of Corn- 
wallis in the autumn of 1781 and the signing of the treaty of 
peace with England in 1783, making each colony a sovereign 
state, that the formation of a Grand Lodge in Maryland was 
considered. On April 17. 1787, the Grand Lodge was estab- 
lished. 

The Grand Master spent some time discussing the prob- 
lem of keeping the Baltimore Temple in a good state of 
repair. It used to be said that there were more Mason® in 
Baltimore than in tiie rest of the state. The situation 
changed in 1960 owing to the shift of population. However, 
the gain in membership was the largest since 1958.

state Lodges must reflect an interesting chapter in the 
history of the Grand Jurisdiction.

hundredth anniversary. An extended and copjrrigbted history 
o(f the Lodge compiled by Bro. Tracy L. Sanborn was append-

ed to the Proceeding's. The history is interesting even to 
Masons living ovutside the Grand Jurisdiction.

the eig-hth oldest in New England and nineteenth in the 
United' States. 

Times amd manners change. It is to be hoped that the 
author will forgive the printing of one paragraph on activ- 
ities in 17T8. 

"Convivial souls indeed were the old Brethren of Philan- 
thropic. Right merrily flowed the brimming bowl as the 
following r^oTd indicates: 'It was agreed to pay Bro. 
Burdick 3 shillings a head for dinner, 6 pence for each Bottle 
Wine more than first cost, 2 shillings for a Bowl of Punch 
and 1 shilling for a Bowl G-rogg.' Later is mentioned the ap- 
pointment of certain Brothers as Stewards 'for procuring 
Rum, Sugar. Candles, Bread & Cheese, Pipes & Tobaker.' All 
the Tiler had to furnish for the meetings was water and it is 
hinted that his duty was not exactly burdensome." 

Bro. Sanborn is to be congratulated on compiling an 
interesting Masonic history of wide appeal. The Proceedings 
contain several other histories of Lodges. Indeed in every 
case where a Grand Lodge Special Communication was held 
for any purpose in connection with a Lodge, a history was 
included regardless of the age of the Lodge concerned. In 
the years to come, these histories will provide a rich and 
readily available storehouse of information for the student 
of the history of Freemasonry in Massachusetts. 

It comes as a surprise thait the Lodges bear names but 
not numbers as is the almost universal practice. 

The Grand Master spoke of declining membership in a 
well reasoned way: "Nearly all Masonic groups are ex- 
periencing a decline in membership, and many reasons are 
advanced for this decline. Our membership has always had 
its cycles of ups and doAvns. During the early twenties 
especially, the Lodges^ were very busy, and a large number 
of candidates ■w'ere being received. No doubt a fairly large 
percentage of those who came in at that time represent a 
goodly portion of those who are now over the three score 
and ten mark, and a busy Lodge can easily show a loss in 
membership. 

"There is no occasion to lose faith in our Fraternity 
because of a temporary decline in membership. Let's all pull 
together to offset those who would destroy it by ridicule 
and slander." 

The Grand Master ruled that no Lodare sihould "use its 
name or the Masonic emblem on any publication, circular, 



36 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

flyer invitation or other mateTdal which refers to the use 
or sale of alcoihoUc beverages at a social, dinner or any 
other function of the Lodge." As was suggested earber, 
other times other manners. 

The report of the Grand Lodge Library and Museiun 
covers twelve pages. It records numerous noteworthy oc- 
casions. 

As can be seen above, the Grand Lodge meets on the 
Feast of St. John the Evangelist. The Grand Master explain- 
ed the reason. "It is an ancient custom that has been per- 
formed in this Grand Lodge, I believe, since the very begin- 
ning of Masonic time in Massachusetts. The earliest Grand 
Masters sent here from England were instructed to celebrate 
the Feast of St. John the Evangelist, probably over two 
hundred years." 

At the dinner, called "the Feast," toasts were drunk to 
the Memory of the Holy Saints John, to the Memory of our 
Illustrious Brother George Washington, to the Memory of 
our Departed Brethren, and to the Brethren wheresoever 
dispersed. 

The dinner ended with the singing of the first stanzas 
of America, God Save the Queen, and Two Countries by the 
Sea.

Once again, the Proceedings of The Gfrand Lodge of 
'Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Michigan, to give 
the full name, provide a wealth of solid information about 
affairs in this Grand Jurisdiction. The Grand Master, M.W. 
Bro. W. W. Kent, estimated that he had made^ speeches to 
between twenty and thirty thousand people during his term 
of office. While Michigan suffered a net loss of mem'bers 
duTing the year the loss was lower than that of the previous 
year. The Grand Master soundly concluded: "I am certain 
that continued attention to the fundamental principles of 
the fraternity will continue to reduce the net loss and ulti- 
mately result in further gains in membership." 

The Grand Master was disturbed over the failure of 
twenty-thiree Lodges to attend the Annual Commundoation. 



FRATERNAL CORjRESPONDENCE 37 

Although an absence of less than five per cent does not 
seem to be alarmingly high, the Grand Master requested aJi 
explanation. It appeared to him that unless the matter is 
corrected it will be necessary to adopt some penal provision. 
"This could be in a nature of a fine or in some cases a 
suspension of the charter." 

It became necessary for the Grand Master to call atten- 
tion to the fact that no lodge room shall be used for any 
imblic purpose on Sunday "except for funerals, Lodges of 
Sorrow, or rehearsals." He did rule, however, that a lodge 
room might be used for church services where a local church 
has burned and no other meeting place was available. 

Plans for seven new Masonic Temples were approved. 

During the year, Michigan acted as host to the Mid-West 
Ck)nference on Masionic Education. There was an excellent 
attendance from the twelve states which comprise the body. 

Discipline is strict in the Grand Jurisdiction. The 
Grand Master reported: "I have found it necessary to 
discipline only one lodge during the course of the year. That 
lodge was placed in darkness for a period of approximately 
60 days because of its continued failure to comply with 
Masonic law with relation to the conferring of the Third 
Degree, and also because of the failure of the officers to be 
properly informed as to the ritual and work. I am pleased 
to say that the lodge is no longer in darkness and that the 
Gcranid Lecturer has reported to the Grand Master that 
observation of the manner in which the work is performed 
during rehearsal satisfies the Grand Lecturer that we will 
have no further cause for oomplaint." 

Later on he stated: "While I have had no further actual 
complaint in this regard there have been rumors about 
roughness in lodge rooms and speaking for the other officers 
of file Grand Lodge it should be called to the attention of 
each of the Masters and other officers present that rough- 
ness will not be tolerated and is not a part of the ritual." 

The Grand Master restated the fact that gambling, or 
any kind of lottery, is contrary to Masionic Law and will 
not be tolerated in the Grand Jurisdiction. He also warned 
against canvassing for office in Grand Lodge, referring to 
certain actions during the previous Communication when 
pencils, match^ and other such material were disbursed 
freely in an effort to win votes. 

Last year these Reviews referred to events in South 
Africa, as described in the Report of the Committee on 
Fraternal Relations. It is fitting that the next chapter should 
be taken from the same source. The Grand Lodge of Southern 



38 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Africa was organized on February 16, 1%1. An editorial in 
the "Masio-nic Journal of South Africa" declared that the close 
collaboration which has existed between Lodges of the 
English, Irish, Scottish and Netherlands Gonsititutioms for 
many years would continue. The United Grand Lodge of 
England and the Grand Lodges of Scotland and Ireland wrill 
continue to administer their Lodges through their District 
and Provincial Grand Masters.

Lodges, 292. Membership, 70,136. Gain, 288. 

The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons 
of Minnesota is the full name of this Grand Lodge. Once 
again the close ties between the Grand Lodge and Canada 
were sihown when the U.S. colours and the Union Jack 
were presented by an honour guard, after which the as- 
semblage sang "America," "God Save the Queen," and "Two 
Countries by thie Sea." 

Unfortunately, the Grand Jurisdiction suffered serious 
blows early in the Masonic year. The Grand Master on 
June 8, while driving with his wife to attend a Masonic 
function were met head on by a truck. Both were in hospital 
for three and one half months. Almost the last meeting the 
Grand Master had attended was that of the Grand Lodge of 
Manitoba. Since every Grand Master has in mind his own 
ideas for the progress and development of Masonry in hiis 
Grand Jurisdiction the Grand Lodge of Minnesota was de- 
prived accordingly. But that was not enough. The Deputy 
Grand Master, R.W. Bro. E. L. Gruber, carried on most ac- 
ceptably until he was suddenly stricken and died on Sept- 
ember 11. Episodes like these point out the great demands 
madte by high office in Freemasonry and the willingness 
with which the holders of those offices take on the heavy 
responsibilities. 

The most heartwarming event of the year was the 
P'resentation of the "Regents Award" by the Regents^ of the 
University of Minnesota to the Masons of Minnesota in 
reco??nition of their act? of "benefaction, fidelity and leader- 
ship"_ in making possible the building of the Masonic Memorial 
Hospital, and their continuing interest in it. In 1955 some 
Masons met and proposed that members of the Craft should 
raise $500,000 towards the million dollars necessarv to build 
a hospital for cancer patients. In a few months the Masons 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 39 

reqiiessted permission to raise the whole amount themselves. 
As a result of their efforts, in 1958, the hospital was opened 
for the care of patients suffering from cancer, regardless of 
race or creed, and for research in the field, of eare ajid 
treatment of cancer and other diseases. 



Two dispetisations granted show that, under dispensation, 
it is permitted to conduct the public installation of officers in 
Minnesota and that blizzards in the same state can force 
cancellation of the annual election of officers lof a Lodge. 

An uncommon predicament, surely, is that recorded where 
the Officers of a Lodge reported that they had made every 
effort to find their Charter, which was lost, without success. 
The request for a duplicate was granted.

Lodges, 313, Membership, 50,781. Gain, 19. 

The Grand Lodge of Mississippi Free and Accepted 
Masons met at Jackson, Mississippi. The Grand Master in 
his address stressed the importance of the Masonic Home 
which supports an average of fifty-one children. He de- 
clared that for approximately 51,000 Master Masons to sup- 
port the Home meant a ratio of about 1,000 to 1. He therefore 
recommended an assesisment of ten dollars on all Masons in 
the Jurisdiction in order to improve the accommodations. 

During the year the Grand Master dedicated three new 
Lodge Buildings. The official visit to the three oldest Lodges 
in Mississippi, Harmony, No. 1, Andrew Jackson, No. 2 and 
Washington, No. 3, (the Lodges which formed the Grand 
Lodge of Mississippi) was' a notable event. These Lodges 
must be about 150 y^rs old. Not a few of the meetings, 
both for installations and dedications, were "an open tJT>e" 
attended by relatives and friends of the members. For 
example, under the date January 6, the Grand Master re- 
ported "I installed officers of Deer Creek Lodge No. 356. at 
3lolling Fork, this was' an open meeting, public invited." The 
next two meetings of January 7 and 9 were also open. The 
Grand Master put in a very full year. 

The Grand Master's Address reveals clearly a great ap- 
preciation of the dignity and importance of Masonry. One 



40 GRAND LODGK OF CANADA 

proposal, among' many, made by the Grand Masiter was that 
Lodges that owned or rented buildings in need of repair 
should do something about them. During his year in office 
he took a picture of every Lodge building which he hoped to 
show at the Annual Oommtmi cation of the Grand Lodge. 



The report of the Fraternal Correspondent Bro. C. C. 
Buchanan, which was adopted, does not attempt to review 
the activities of each Grand Lodge but rather presents a 
statement in general terms. Readers of the PVatemal 
Reviews of the Grand Lodge of Canada for 1960 will remem- 
ber that in that year the Grand Correspondent recommended 
teiminating relations with the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia 
because it had "agreed to allow the subordinate Lodges to 
accept applications for membership from the infringing 
Prince Hall group." It is gratifying to be able to report 
that the same Correspondent now declares. "At the sugges- 
tion of the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia I have made fur&ier 
study of the matter and, after due reflection, I now feel 
that our action at that time was precipitate and that I have 
led my Grand Lodge into a position open to just criticism." 
He therefore recommended that the proper officials of the 
Grand Lodge of Mississippi immediately proceed to reestab- 
lish fraternal relations ^vith the Grand Lodge of Nova Scotia, 
subject to the concordance of that Grand Lodge. 



In the same report the Correspondent recommended that 
recognition be granted to the Grand Lodge of Isiael with the 
comment that in so doing, "we are the last of the Grand 
Lodges in the United States to effect this exchange of amity 
and fraternal relations." 



As he reported last year, the Fraternal Correspondent 
believed that he discerned a development of friction between 
Masonry and the Church. He did add, however, "Here in the 
South we have not yet encountered much opposition from 
this source. Many of our leading preachers of most denom- 
inations are members and supporters of the Masonic frater- 
nity who know that no conflict exists between the two and 
that both seek to elevate the moral and spiritual character 
of men along paths parallel but entirely separate and never 
oonflictin'g." It is to be hoped that the Correspondent may 
have drawn general conclusions from a few specific instances. 
Certainly, not only in the South are clergy found who are 
supporters of the Masonic Fraternity. At the same time, he 
does show a deep and sincere appreciation of the values of 
Masonry, revealing the amount of research and thought he 
has given to his task.

MISSOURI— 1961 

140th Annual Communication — September 26-27 

Grand Master,1960-61— M.W. Bro. B. H. Hunt 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. R. H. Mann 

Lodges, 596. Membership, 123,432. Loss, 789. 

The full name of this Grand Lodge is the Grand Lodge 
of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of the State of Mis- 
souri. 

Although, in 1961, several Grand Masters commented on 
the decline in total membership. M.W. Bro. Hunt gave one 
of the clearest evaluations of .the problem. 

"For four consecutive years the reports of lodges have 
resulted in a net loss in membership. The mere fact that a 
slight loss in membership is apparent does not constitute a 
tragedy. If we are concerned with numbers alone that 
problem is easily solved. All that we need to do is to drop 
the investigating committees and throw away the ballot 
boxes. We continue to be more concerned with the Masonry 
within the man than with the number of men in Masonry. 
Science has delved far beneath the surface of the earth in 
search of knowledge, and has explored the depths of the 
oceans in an effort to learn more about the world and all it 
contains. Now we are busily engaged in a competitive race 
to probe the far flung reaches of outer space. Freemasonry 
continues to apply its science to the fathomless depths of 
man himself. It appeals to his moral and spiritual nature, 
and endeavours to lift him above all those things physical 
and bring him closer to the ver\^ summit of human knowledge 
— ^his duty to God and to man. 

"Statistics will be quoted in the report of the Committee 
on Chartered Lodges, and wiU be reflected in the report of 
the Grand Secretary-, that will indicate a recession in member- 
ship. The reports of the District Deputy Grand Masters 
throughout the state indicate a healthy, stable fraternity 
in Missouri. New temples have been erected and others 
paid for. Interest and enthusiasm appear to be at a com- 
mendable level. My experiences during the past year have 
con-vnnced me that Freemasonry in Missouri is in good con- 
dition. I am convinced that the lodges in this jurisdiction 
are capable of meeting and sohing any pix)blems with which 
they may be confronted." 

In addition to his comments on membership, the Grand 
Master had some sage remarks to make on Masonic buildings. 

"I cannot bring mj'^elf to close this report on the con- 
dition of the Craft ^vithout making an obsen'ation and issu- 



42 GRAND LOD^E OF CANAOA 

ing a ward of caution. It has come to my attention gradually 
and over a period of years that certain of Missouri's fine 
Masonic Temples are becoming serious problems. In the 
marjority of such instances there is no immediate threat of 
the loss of property, but the problem of maintenance and 
upkeep is becoming acute, and in some instances even burden-- 
some. Some temples were 'over^built' in the beginning and 
others have outlived their usefulness. In certain localities 
wise management has' resulted in the sale of outmoded and 
undesirable temples, and the erection or acquisition of more 
suitable quarters. Others at this particular time are' in the 
process of formulating plans for the disposition of temples, 
have acquired land upon which to erect new temples and 
have architectural drawings of beautiful new homes for 
Freemasonry which will be more adequate for their use and 
not in the burdensome class." 

He concluded with a sound word of warning: "Always, 
there are those who resist any suggested change. In the 
case of Masonic Temples, always, there is a minority of 
brethren who resist vigorously any suggestion to dispose of 
the old and to erect the new, even though they may admit 
that to remain where they are will place heavy, perhaps too 
heavy, demands on the membership. The question must 
arise, should Freemasonry devote the major portion of its 
energy and facilities to the maintenance of inanimate objects 
made of brick and stone and mortar? Should the basic 
tenets of Freemasonry become secondary to mere Masonic 
buildings? It is my belief that Masonic lives, well lived in 
accordance wnth the fundamental principles of Freemasonry, 
are greater monuments to the Ancient Craft than all tiie 
Masonic edifices that have ever been erected. Wherein, then, 
lies our primary duty and obligation ? 

"I feel compelled to issue this word of caution to those 
who are in the process of building, or who contemplate a 
change in meeting place. Build adequately for your require- 
ments, but do not over-build. Build for the present and for 
the foreseeable future. In all building programs keep 
maintenance in mind." 

The Committee on Grand Master's Address did not see 
entirely eye to eye with the Grand Master and added: "We 
agree that Freemasonry does not exist in brick and stone 
but rather in the hearts of Freemasons. We do feel, how- 
ever, that an attractive Masonic Temple may inspire the 
members." 

Durine the year more than five hundred fifty-year 
buttons were presented. 

The Grand Jurisdiction oi)erates a most successful Home 
and Hospital. During the year there were 346 guests in tiie 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 43 

Home and the Hospital averaged 142 patients daily. Financ- 
ially, the Home is in a strong- financial position. The endow- 
ment of about $3,500,000 was increased by a bequest of 
$1,500,000, making a total $5,000,000. 

A Sesquicentennial Committee is already at work plan- 
ning for ten years from now. Clearly the Grand Master 
was correct when he said that Freemasonry is in a healthy 
and stable condition in Missouri. 

The list of living Past Granl Masters totals twenty-four. 
The Grind Master in 1940-41 was M.W. Bro. Harry S. 
Truman.

Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of 
Montana met in the Bow Theatre, Butte. Once again the 
close relatiofT-s between this Grand Jurisdiction and those in 
Western Canada were shown in the presentation of the 
flags of the United States and Canada and the singing of 
"T^e Star Spangled Banner" and "O Canada." For many 
years visits have been exchanged between Alberta and 
Miontana. 

With the centenary of the Grand Lodge approaching. 
the Grand Master stressed the way in which the early 
Masonic history is interwoven with actual Montana histor>'. 
The year was dedicated to the memory of the deeds of the 
pioneer Masons of Montana. Both Captains Meriwether 
Lewis anidi William Clark, famnns for the Lewis and Clark 
Expedition, were Masons. 

The Grand Lodges of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming and 
Montana, join annually in the Rocky Mountain Conference. 
This year the meeting, the tenth, was held in Casper, 
Wyoming. Realizing that the similar Banff Conference owes 
much of its continuing popularity to the charm of its sur- 
roundings and by holding it in a central spot each year, the 
Grand Master proposed that the Rocky Mountain Conference 
be held annuallv at Canyon Village, Yello'w'stone National 
Park. 

The list of dispensations shows that outdoor meetingtt 
are not uncommon in the Grand Jurisdiction. Four Lodges 



44 ORAND LODGE OF CANADA 

received disipensation to hold an outdoor meeting, on Jiily 
30, "at approximately the site of the first known meeting of 
Mason® in Mooiitana, on Mullan Pass, souithwest of Helena. . . 
there to open and close a Master Mason Lodge, but to confer 
no degrees." All caution against the approach of cowans and 
eavesdroppers was reqxiir&d and all resident members weire 
to be notified. 



Another Lodge, North Star No. 46, held an outdoor 
meeting "at the former Thos. McPherson ranch about 2%_ 
miles north of the Fort Peck powerhouse in the Missouri 
Edver bottom" and conferred a Master Mason degree. Two 
other Lodges held outdoor meetings where they conferred 
"the second section of the thiTd degree." 



The Go'and Master had a journey few Masons are privil- 
eged to enjoy. On September 15 he left Vancouver for 
Europe and did not return until November 4. In the mean- 
time he visited representatives of Grand Lodges in many 
countries. His comments on his meeting with V.W. Bro. 
James W. Stubbs, Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of 
England, are worth repeating. 



"October 8, 1^60 — On this date I had an appointment 
for a meeting in London with V.W. Bro. James W. Stubbs, 
Grand Secretary of the Grand Lodge of England. I went to 
Freemasons^ Hall on Great Queen Street for this exchange 
which houses what is unquestionably the greatest Masonic 
museum in the world. Here can be found Masonic relics and 
mementos of priceless value, many of them from the 1700s, 
The hall in which the Grand Lodge meets is a most inspiring 
room which must be seen to be appreciated. One of the 
interesting objects found in this building is the Grand 
Master's installation chair which is hundreds of years old and 
a real ceremonial piece. Another prized object is the apron 
of Edward VII worn when he was Grand Master. 



V.W. Brother Stubbs . .. holds a most unique position 
in regular Freemasonry because of the fact that he is Grand 
Secretary of the original Grand Lodge of 1717 or the 
'mother' Grand Lodge of us all. Because of this, his office 
is under great pressure in many matters that pertain to 
regular Freemasonry, all over the globe, and it is necessary 
that they must use extreme care and caution in all their 
recommendations, documents, recordings, etc. To do less 
might lead other jurisdictions into areas of action simply 
on the basis of England's attitude and therefore, it is, 
obviously, meticulous in all areas of legislation and fraternal 
action that others in the Masonic world carefully watch."

to the By-Laws' of 115 Lodges, most having to do with an 
increase in dues or fees. 

Nebraska Masonic Home is proving to be increasingly 
costly. The Grand Master stated that there is an urgent 
need for the Grand Lodge to adopt some plan to obtain or 
solicit funds to benefit the endowment fund. During the 
year much ^^■us done to clear up the property. However, 
improvements, which cost in the neighbourhood of $300,000, 
are required. As the life span increases, the age of residents 
constantly rises Avith an increasing demand for care. Of the 
ninety residents only five do not require care or supenision. 

In addition the Grand Lodge sponsors a home for 
children. 

A new project proposed some years ago is coming to 
fruition, without expense to Grand Lodge. This is an apart- 
ment house project called Masonic Manor. The feeling was 
^at things were being done for destitute brethren but not 
for those who could pay their way for li\'ing quarters. The 
new building ^^•ill be for Masons over sixty-two years of age 
and their wives and \\'idows. The proposal is to erect sixty 
ai>artments and sell them for between $3,000 and $4,500 
which will give a "pei^jetual" (presumably life-time) lease. 

^e Grand Master ended his Address on a high note. 
Referring to the many causes assigned to the decline in 
M-asonic membership and particularly the apparent lack of 
interest in the age groups between twenty-one and thirty- 
nine years he declared: 

"Before we convince oui-selves that any of these reasons, 
singly or collectively, is the cause of the continuing do\\-nwanl 
trend in membership, we should indulge in some self -analysis. 
First, we should make a greater effort to so conduct our 



46 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

lives toward our brethren and our fellowmen as to be an 
example of the true spirit of brotherhood which, I believe, 
would encourage men to affiliate in membership with Masons. 
We must demonstrate in our conduct the true sigTiifieance 
embodied in the symbolism of the trowel. We sihould not 
consider ourselves to be our brother's keeper and set ourselves 
up as a guardian in the ethics and morals' of each and every 
member of the Fraternity. We cannot be hypocrites. We 
should not expect a higher degree of conduct from ouir 
brethren and our fellowmen than we ourselves are willing 
to demomstTate. 

"Each of us S'hould extend greater effort to exhibit to 
the world a complete unity and harmony among all Masonic 
bodies, for in harmony there is strength . . . 

"If we will follow this course we can be aissured that 
our Fraternity will remain as it has in the p'ast, an example 
of freedom of the individual, of dignity and of true brother- 
hood. Then and only then have we no concern that owr 
membership will decline, but our beloved Fraternity will 
grow in strength and influence."

Lodges, 48. Membership, 8,959. Loss, 2. 

This Grand Lodge uses the word "Ancient" but in the 
form followed by some of the Grand Lodges in the United 
States. The full name is The Ancient and Honourable Frater- 
nity of FVee and Accepted Masons of New Brunswick. 'Hie 
Brethren were profoundly shocked to learn that M.W. Bro. 
J. W. Duncan. Grand Master 1951-53, siiffered a seizure and 
died during the noon hour between the morning and after- 
noon sessions. 

In speaking on the state of the Order, the Grand Master 
ref€?rred to matter of numbers, degree ^vork and examin- 
ations in the Third Degree. He summed up much thought 
in two brief paragraphs. 

"We are about holding our own in numbers which is not 
too bad in these days when many jurisdictions are sihowing 
losses every year. We are having many new members but 
are losing too many in demits and suspensions. Those taking 
demits and being suspended mostly never did have too much 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 47 

interest in Masonry but I believe those who are remaining: 
are taking a greater interest than ever before. The Degree 
work is being well done but I feel that a social evening 
once in a while would be a good thing in some Lodges thart; 
have a goodly number of candidates. I feel that four or 
five candidates for the Third Degree om a regular Lodge 
night should be discouraged as I am sure it is not too good 
for iSie attendance. 

"As our Ritual has an examination for the Third Degree 
I would recomimend that all candidates be instructed and ex- 
amined on the Master Mason Degree. Also that the instruc- 
tion and examination in all Degrees include the obligations." 

What we would call Constituent Lodges are called Private 
Lodges in New Brunswick. 

The Grand Historian told of a full year, which seemed 
to be one of many anniversaries.

Once agaiin the District Grand Master's diary reveals 
a full year of great activity. Under June 24 is recorded: 
*'St. John the Baptist's Day and the historic date of the dis- 
covery of Newfoundland, by John Cabot in 1497. Landfall 
Lodge observes the anniversary by holding its annual In- 
stallation and banquet." 

Three further brief entries tell much in few words: 
"September 30. Arrived safely at St. John's after a trip 
involving 1,700 miles in twelve days." 

"October 13. Annual meeting of Avalon Lodge, which 
I joined 63 years ago." 

"March 3. My eighty-fourth birthday. I had a surprise 
■visit from my Mother Lodge Avalon." 

The oldest Lodge in the Province is Saint John's No. 
579 originally numbered 844. It was founded November 29, 
1848. ^ I*rior to 1870 Newfoundland was included in the 
Masonic Province of Nova Scotia.

The full and formal description of this Grand Lodge is 
the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of the Ancient and 
Honorable Fraternity, Free and Accepted Masons of the 
State of New Hampshire. The seal sihows simply The Grand 
Lodge in New Hampshire, with the date 1789. 

The report on the Masonic Home at Manchester stated 
that there were forty members in the home. No fewer than 
five of the men residents, of a total of only nineteen, aire 
over ninety. 

Three Lodges celebrated their centennials and one, 
Humane Lodge, No. 21, Rochester, celebrated its 150th 

anniversary. 

The Grand Lodge approved two recommendations of the 
Grand Master: that a complete study be made of the organiz- 
ation of districts, which had been assigned when railways 
were the most common means of transportation and th-at 
a Grand Historian be appointed. As the Grand Master said: 
"We in Masonry live and exist on our traditions. We are 
steeped in the aroma of beautiful memories, but of what 
value are they if not recorded for posterity." Plans are under 
way to celebrate the One hundred and seventy-fifth anni- 
versary of the Grand Lodge in 1964. 

The Committee on Masonic Education reported a busy 
year. Much has been accomplished on a new book to be 
published on Masonic Courtesy, Protocol and Customs. The 
Committee has also published pamphlets on the Life of 
General John Sullivan, the first Grand Master of New 
Hampshire, and "101 Questions About Freemasonry." In 
an active Grand Lodge, the Committee stands out for its 
activity. 

As usual M.W. Bro. Harold 0. Cady, P.G.M,, provided 
a noteworthy report, of 180 pages, on Fraternal Correspond- 
ence. In his Foreword he says. "It has been noted in many 
Grand Jurisdictions that the larger the Lodge the smaller 
percentage of attendance. Much of our finest officer 
material goes to waste in a large Lodge, since there is no 
opportunity or hope of ever taking an office." The Grand 
Lodge of Canada in the Province of Ontario received over 
three pages.

The Grand Lodge of the Moat Ancient and Honorable 
Siociety of Free and Accepted Masons for the State of New 
Jersey is the full name of this Grand Lodge. 

The photographs of two new Masonic Temples reflect a 
new and imaginative architectural treatment. With the 
promise of the exteriors, the interiors must also be both 
attractive and practical. 

All but two of the Lodges in the Grand Jurisdiction 
were represented at the Annual Communication. 

Preparations are goins: forward for the celebration of 
the 175th anniversary of the Grand Lodge. It is expected 
that $15,000.00 which has been appropriated will be required 
for a successful celebration. A souvenir and condensed 
history of the Grand Lodge will be providetl for all members, 
of the Grand Jurisdiction. 

The Grand Lodge operates a large Home. During the 
yeiar there were a total of 238 guests. There is great pi'es- 
suTe on the Infinnary, owing to the higher age level of in- 
mates. Thirty-two gue.sts are over 80 year? of age. The 
average age is Sm. The total operating cost of the Home, 
including Infirmary care was $675,451 or a per capita cost 
of $2,838 per year.' The Permanent Fund of the Foundation 
has reached more than $6,200,000. Expansion of the Home 
is planned.

The full name of this Grand Lodge is The Grand Lodge

Of the five special communications of Grand Lodge one 
was for the purpose of laying a cornerstone of a new elemen- 
t^ary school and one for a hospital. Earlier Proceedings over 



50 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

the years have consistently reported activities like these. 
As in other years, too, the Grand Master was able to visit 
every Lodge in the Grand Jurisdietiion and some of them 
more than once. 

The year was marked by peace and tranquility. Attend- 
ance at meeting's continued tj) be the biggest problem. Plans 
and financial arrangements for the erection of three new 
Lodge buildings were approved. Since the cornerstone for a 
fourth was laid during the year Lodges in New Mexico, when 
the total in the Grand JuTisdiction is considered, are extreme- 
ly active. By-laws approving the increase of dues were 
passed in ten cases, making a total lof ithirty-five in two years. 

Three Lodges lost no members by demit, death, stispen- 
sion or expulsion. Over loss by death a Lodge has no control 
but the remaining causes of loss usually can be attributed 
to a Lodge failure somewhere. The Committee on Chartered 
Lodges rightly congratulated the thiree Lodges. During 
the year the number of members increased by a shade under 
one percent. The greatest gain was ^lown by newer Lodges 
and the greaitest loss by the older. Although a net gain was 
recorded the Committee felt that it should be greater as 
New Mexico is a growing State. 



NEW SOUTH WALES— 1961

Lodges. 890. Membership, 130,245. Loss, 2,750. 

The question as to what is the proper attire in Lodges 
received a great deal of attention from the Grand Master. 
Readers of these Review^s will recall that the matter has 
been discussed in other Grand Jurisdictions in Australia, 

The Grand Master was specific in the procedure he laid 
down. "Correct attire at our stated meetings is of utmost 
importance and our reputation for dignified proceedings can 
be attributed in no small measure to our insistence upon the 
wearing of fonral dress. However, the Board agrees with 
me.that there might be some compromise upon those occasions 
when heatwaA'e conditions subject the Brethren to consider- 
able discomfort. . . . All things considered. I have decided 
to introduce the following procedure for a trial period diu"ing 
the forthcoming summer — 

(1) Brethren will arrive at their lodge meeting attired in 
accordance with a former Grand Master's edict, i.e. dinner 



FRATERNAL C5ORRESP0NDENCE 61 

eoiit and black bow tie, or full dress suit and white bow tie. 
A Brother who is travelling without dre&s clothes may appear 
in the darkest lounge suit and darkest knotted tie in his 
possession at the time, 

(2) If, in the Worshipful Master's opinion, the temper- 
ature is hig-h enouffh to cause disoomfort he may g^rant per- 
mission to Brethren who are dressed in the prescribed manner, 
to remove coats, vests and braces before entering the Lodge 
Room. 

"I wish to emphasize that this consideration is not to be 
regarded as a relaxation in our standards but rather as an 
emergency measure to meet extreme weather conditions. 
Should it be found that the spirit of this instruction is being 
abused in any way I will be compelled to withdraw the priv- 
ilege which is now being offered. The Brethren of Grand 
Lodge Rank Tvill understand that their regalia must be worn 
over a dress coat and that the position will therefore remain 
unchanged so far as Grand Officers are concerned." 

A severe loss during the year came through the death of 
Viscount Dunrossil, the Governor-General of Australia, after 
only one year and one day in office. During this brief period 
he had created a great impi-ession on the people of the whole 
of the Australian States. He was initiated in 1917 and had 
always evinced a great interest in Freemasonry. He had 
already affiliated with two Australian Lodges. 

The continuation of the Jubilee Choir, a noteworthy 
feature in the activities of the Grand Jurisdiction since 1938, 
was endangered by the retirement of Bro. Charles Miller 
after twenty-two years of service. Fortunately, Bro. Allan 
R. Bellhouse of Lodge University of Sydney, took on the 
responsibility. 

A new and original problem, undreamed of in the early 
years of Freemasionry, came to light. It was dealt with 
expeditiously. The Grand Master reported on the incident: 

"It has come to the knowledge of the Board of General 
Purposes that a tape recording machine had been operated 
in a Lodge Room, and in another case, the Ritual was record- 
ed for the purpose of learning same, and on the recommend- 
ation of the Board I mow direct: — 

"That the use of artificial means of recording and re- 
producing any part of the proceedings inside a Lodge is not 
permitted, and must not be used by a member of a Lodge for 
the recording and retaining any portion of Ritual or Cere- 
monial. Such action would constitute a violation of an 
Obligation." 

The following ruling of the Grand Master reveals that 
some Lodges in New South Wales permit the use of alcoholic 



62 GRAJSTD LODGE OF CANAjDA 

beverages and tothers do not. Evidently an "endorsement 
on the Charter" is vised to exclude the vise of liquor at Lodge 
meeting's, 

"A Temperance Lodge with an endorsed Charter ap- 
proached the Board lof General Purposes in respect to it being 
permitted to allow the presence of spirituous liquors at its 
social functions. After oonsideration it was resolved that the 
endorsement on the' Charter would not prevent it from allow- 
ing same, provided that no funds of the Lodge were expended 
theTeon, and I am in full accord with this."

Lodges, 1,061. Membership, 299,035. Loss, 3.538. 

In addition to the total of 1,061 Lodges, which includes 
American Lodge of Research amd Sun & Field Lodge, No. 1, 
th'e Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of the State 
of New York lists eleven Lodges in the District (Jrand Lodge 
of Syria -Lebanon. These Lodges are located in such places 
as Beirut and Damascus. 

The Trustees of the Masonic Hall and Asylum Fund 
presented a full report. The Masonic Home, at Utica, has 
been in operation for nearly seventy years. It has grown 
from a single building to a planned system of a dozen or 
more buildings covering approximately one hundred acres 
of resident land and some three hundred acres of farm land. 
In addition the Trustees, for thirty-seven years, have main- 
tained a Camp at Round Lake. 

In the beginning the Home was established for the Master 
Mason, his widow and orphan. But times have brought 
great changes. Today there are few children in the Home 
and the adult residents are becoming older. The Home is 
changing steadily into an "Infirmary and Hospital". 

The Grand Lodge property on 23rd Street is causing 
concern. A committee to investigate the problem gave a 
full historjT of the buildings. In addition to housing the 
Grand Lodge offices and Masonic Hall, one part houses com- 
mercial tenants. The ravages of time are making costly 
repairs necessary. Just what should be done, and there are 
many possibilities open, is going to take much thought. 

The Chairman of the Committee on Law Enforcement 
reported on "The Matter of Bro. Charles Van Cott and his 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE &3 

book-Freemasonry, a Sleeping Giant." The Chairman 
stated "The book expressed opinions and ideas at varianoe 
with the basic concepts of the Order .... It tends by 
obloquy to hold Masonry up in sham and hypocrisy before 
the world, and poses a. tiireat to the good name and reputa- 
tion of our beloved Fraternity by bringing its dignity, honor, 
integrity and good sense into disrepute." 

The Grand Historian drew attention to the hundredth 
anniversarj' of the beginning of the Civil War and '.x)ld 
something of the views expressed and Masonic activity a 
century ago. He quoted from the Grand Master's Address 
in 186i: "amid the storms of passion by which society has 
been con\Ti'lsed to its utmost depths, Masonry has stood calm 
and dispassionate, pursuing with measured and unfaltering 
step, the mission set apart unto her, and closing the avenue 
of her Temples for the very echo of discord and strife." In 
spite of the troublous times thirty-five Lodges were granted 
charters in 1860 and in 1861. 

The Library and Museum of this Grand Jurisdiction is 
ntotable. During the year 12,923 books were lent, 9,411 by 
mail. The Chairman included an informative paragraph on 
"Where the Reading and Reference Materials Come From" 
in which he said: 

"The oldest Masonic book, now known as the Regius 
manuscript, was produced almost 600 years ago in England- 
It was copied from still older books, since lost. Its principal 
contents were the 'old charges' for proper Masonic conduct 
day by day. together with a traditional history of the Frater- 
nity and its mission in the world. These are the basic 
subjects for practically all Mas'onic books, of which there are 
now many thousands emanating from England and the United 
States and other countries of the free world, well represent- 
ed in our Grand Lodge Library and Museum by about 45.000 
copies of books and pamphlets, 350 linear feet of printed 
and typed reference material in vertical file cabinets, and 
7,500 museum items in exhibit cases and in storage." 

One might get the impression from what has been 
written that Committee reports overshadowed the Grand 
Master's Address. But such a conclusion would be far from 
sound. The Grand Master ended the Communication with 
some brief pointed remarks which merit reprinting here: 

"Masonry, it seems to me, has two primary purposes. 
The first of these great purposes is to uplift and strengthen 
the characters of the member Masons. It is for this reason 
that we perform Masonic Degfrees. Each of these Degrees is 
designed to teach a moral lesson. As we progress with these 
Degrees we learn not; only more about the meaning of 



54 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Masonry but also more about ourselves and our relations 
with other people. These, thereby, become like a recitation 
of our responsibilities to our God, to ourselves and to all 
maai'kind. 

"The second greait purpose of Masonry is to spread our 
ideal of Brotherhood tihroug'hout the world at large. We are 
all aware that actioois si)eak louder than words, and for this 
xeason Masonry takes upon itself the responsibility for a 
vast number of charitable endeavours. There are those who 
axe continually amazed by the number and the variety of 
the charities which we organize and support. They should 
not be, for these benevolences are in no sense the extra- 
curricular or spare-time activities of Masonry. They arise 
out of the very nature of the Order itself. Should we ever 
cease our efforts to improve the lot of mankind our Masonic 
ideals would become meaningless and Masonry itself would 
not sui^ve. 

"There is, of course, still a third aspect of Masonry. 
Tliis aspect is a social one and arises out of the other two. 
In the course of our Lodge activities and charitable en- 
deavours it is only natural that we should derive great satis- 
faction in associating with others who are participa/ting in 
these programs. This is certainly as it should be. Although 
we as Masons are dedicated to hi^h ideak, we need not look 
upon our obligations as crosses to be borne in silence. We 
should rather go about our tasks with joy and enthusiasm 
and encourage others to do likewise. Social programs in all 
our Lodges should be expanded and diversified. Membership 
in Masonry, in short, should be more than a responsibility. 
It shoulld be a pleasure. . , 

"Finally, and most important, we will be bringing nearer 
the day when our Masonic ideal of universal Brotherhood 
becomes a fighting reality."

The Board of Benevolence reported a successful year. 
The unexpected balance on operations amounted to £20,968 
which enabled the Board to recommend special grants of 
£20,000 bo the Masonic Homes, Masonic Associations, and 
National public charities. 

Attendance in Hie Papakura Masonic Boys^ Home drop-

leaving in a few micnths — 'that it was decided to close the 
Home and apply to the Supreme Court for the widening of 
the objects of the Trust. 

The Northern Association completed a Home and this 
was opened officially by the Governor-General in March, 1961, 
"in brillian sunsihine" and before an assembly of over 3,000 
Masions and their wives and other guests. There were eighty- 
nine residents in the Home. The objective is bo cater to the 
needs of two hundred elderly citizens. 

The Grand Lodge also provided thirty-four bursaries to 
assist students in advancing their secondary or professional 
education. These bursaries provide "that little extra assist- 
ance" which enables young people from homes less fortimate 
financially to be educated to a standard they could not other- 
■•vise attain. 

The Grand Master, in his address, reiterated his remarks 
of the previous year on the need for a better informed mem- 
bership . and on the need for more positive action to arrest 
or prevent the heavy annual loss of metnbers who resign 
and do not link up with any other Lodge. 

He went on: "Prior to their joining a Lodge, few candi- 
dates have any clear conception of the character and object- 
ives of our Order, and even after they have become Master 
Maisons many find these' objectives still somewhat nebulous; 
yet if Freemasonry is to accomplish the purpose of its being, 
these objectives must be' crystal clear to every member. For 
lack of adequate instruction the ritual is to many a beautiful 
but rather purposeless ceremonial. It is only as each individ- 
ual member realises its purpose and potential, and is led to 
translate its tenets into a code of beha\nour, that Freemasonry 
can confer its benign benefits on mankind. The power and 
influence of Freemasonry is just what we choose 1» make it. 

"In every community Freemasons are judged not by 
what they know but about \vhat they do; but their actions 
are largely conditioned by their knowledge and convictions. 
The interest taken in Freemasonry is usually proportional to 
one's knowledge of the history, tenets, symbolic, philosophy, 
aims, duties, and potentialities, and to the extent to whidi 
experience in its working is gained. Lacking this background, 
it is easy to see why to many the continual working of the 
same three ceremonies leads to borediom, loss of interest, 
irregular attendance, and frequently to resignation .... 

"The primary purpose of every Lodge is not to make 
members but Masons, and this necessarily involves time for 
adequate instruction as well as regular Masonic emplo\Tnent. 
A Lodge that limits its acti\nties to initiating, passing, and 
raising candidates is not fulfilling one of its major functions." 



56 GRAND LOI>GE OF CANADA 

The Grand Master then discussed the four topics: The 
Annual Intake of Candidates, the Selection of Candidates, 
the Promotdon and Maintenance of Interest, and the Limi- 
tation of Lodg« Membersip. Und^r the last heading he said: 

"It is not possible to name any figure as a desirable 
maximum, as circumstances vary so viadely; but in general 
terms a Lodg'e has become too big when Masonic work can- 
not be found for every member, when a majority of the mem- 
bers cannot ever hope to hold office, when one section of 
the members is quite unknown to the others, or when that 
intimate friendship s-o characteristic of the smaller Lodges is 
missing. It would sefem desirable in the interests of all con- 
cerned for every Lodge where any of the above conditions 
apply to consider the advisability of sponsoring a daughter 
Lodge." 

The Grand Master spoke also of the remarkable quicken- 
ing of interest in the charitable activities of the Order in New 
Zealand. 



NORTH CAROLINA— 1961

The Grand Lodge of Ancient Free and Accepted Masons 
of North Carolina, to give the official name, held its Annual 
Communication in New Bern for the first time since 1792. 
The year saw no fewer than ten emergent communications 
for the purpose of layine cornerstones of new Masionic 
Temples and six for the purpose of dedicating new ones. As 
the Grand Orator declared at the first day, night session, 
"Masonry is on the move in North Carolina." 

For the first time in the history of the Grand Lodge, 
the installation of Grand Lodge Officers was open to the 
public. The Board of General Purposes early in 1960 com- 
missioned the Committee on Miscellaneous Masonic Cere- 
mionies to write a special installation cermony for this event. 
This new form was used and the ceremony itself was televised 
for showing over various television stations in North 
Carolina. 

The Grand Lodge operates a Masonic Home and also an 
orphanage. A maximum of 75 can be accommodated in the 
former and the capacity of the latter is 313, of whom 19 are 
children of Masonic heritage. The Oxford Orphanage 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 57 

evidently is a most active institution, where vocational traia- 
inig is stressed. The Proceedings of the Grand Lodge are 
printed at the press there and the annual report show^ that 
the dairy herd was showing- a nice profit. A new cow bam 
was near completion, replacing one lost by fire. Many new 
buildings have been completed during recent years. During 
this year a new dining hall and kitchen alsio were built. 

Since the Grand Jurisdiction will be holding its 175th 
Annual Communication in 1962 many suggestions have been 
put forth regarding fitting ways in which the occasion may 
be recognized. Many believe that a complete history of the 
Grand Lodge should be published. The interest in history 
is revealed by the Grand Historian who reported that he had 
written to every Lodge, which had not done so previously, to 
appoint a historian or committee who would record the im- 
portant events and activities of his Lodge from its institution. 
To date over two-thirds of Lodges in North Carolina have 
done something along this line. The Grand Historian con- 
cludes: "There is no doubt that the subordinate Lodges are

The Grand Historian and Grand Secretary have in pre- 
paration a brochure on the Grand Lodge Executive Office 
Building, including a sihort historical sketch of all the epi- 
sodes in the historv^ of the Grand Lodge depicted by tiie

Lodges, 120. Membership, 13,789. Loss, 146. 

The Grand Lodge A. F. & A. M. of Dakota Territory was 
constituted in 1875. This Grand Lodge was di\nded into the 
Grand Lodges of North and South Dakota in 1889. This 
division anticipated statehood by some months. Thus these 
two Grand Lodges are older than the States which they rep- 
resent. The name of the Grand Lodge of North Dakota per- 
petuates the .original form, including the word "Ancient." 

Each year's Proceedings reveal the close ties between the 
Mason? of North Dakota and their brethren north of the 
border. This year was no exception. Something was added, 
however, when for the first time the Grand Officers of North 
Dakota were escorted into the Grand Lodge room to "the 
melodious strain of a bagpipe, played by Brother William 
Sutherland of Brandon, Manitoba."

Once again the Stars and Stripes and the Union Jack 
were placed in the Grand East. But this year they were 
new flags, a gift from the Past Grand Masters of Manitoba 
and were being losed for the first time. At both the oi>e!ning 
of Grand Lodge and at the Grand Lodge dinner "America" 
and "God Save the Queen" were simg. 

The account lof the Grand Master's travels records many 
visits between North Dakota and Manitoba. A joint meeting 
of the two Grand Lodges was held at Morris, Manitoba, at 
which M.W. Bro. Paxman gave the main address. Perhaps 
relatiions were even more cordial than usual this year be- 
cause the Grand Master was' married, presumably to a 
Canadian, in Winnipeg in 1928. 

One of the most imjyortant events of the year was the 
twenty-fourth annual Lookout Point Meeting. The list of 
disipensations shows that Malta Lodge, No. 131, was per- 
mitted to hold an open air tyled lodge meeting. Biit acttially 
it was an international occasion. The meeting be'gan with an 
aftemoion church service followed by a picnic. As soon after 
six o'clock as possible a tyled meeting was opened by officers 
of Manitou Lodge, No. 30, of Manitoba. After receiving 
distinguished Masons from Canada the chairs were turned 
over to the master and officers' of Malta Lodge, of Grand 
Forks, North Dakota, who received the Grand Lodge Officers 
from North Dakota. The principal address of the evening, 
entitled "Tolerance," was given by M.W. Bro. A. J. Sawatzky, 
of Manitoba. 

The Grand Master made gratifying remarks about the 
Banff Conference at Banff. Alberta, which is composed of the 
Grand Lodges of the four Westerrn provinces. He said "It 
is the most compact and best of them all and one that con- 
stantly produces great results." 

The Grand Lodge Committee on Masonic Education has 
been most active. The Grand Lodge Library of North Dakota 
which has long had the distinction of owning one of the best 
libraries of Masonry had another good year. 

Althiough once again the year saw a net loss in member- 
ship the figure is becoming smaller. Many of the lodges, 
and especially the larger ones, have such a backlog of pet- 
itions and unfinished work that they cannot recess for the 



The Grand Master made several reoommendatiioms. 
Among them were: that it takes' two black balls to reject a 
petition, "to do away with pettiness;" that the incoming 
Grand Master appoint a committee of three businessmen to 
study the operation of nearby Grand Lodge offices, with a 
view to modernizing and streamlining the operation of the 



FRATERNAL CORRiEiSPONDBNCE 59 

Grand JurisdictioTi; and that wherever iwssible lodges or 
Districts hold at least one Divine Service. 

In oonclusdon the Grand Master declared: "In this hig-h- 
powered age there are many things competing for our 
Masonic time, but we are the only one that has only Masonry 
to sell. The terrible state of world affairs would indicate 
that man has not yet learned .to live with man, the -wiorld is 
in dire need of the tenets of our Craft; Brotherly Love, Relief 
and Truth. It has need for a knowledge of and a practice of 
lO'Ur belief in the Brotherhood of Man, under the Fatherhood 
of 'God. It behooves us, my Brethren, a® Masons, to practice 
outside of the Lodge, those tenets which are tau/ghJt in it; 
if we do, Masionry, whose member.s had such a large part 
in the creation of our Government and has grown along with 
■the United States, will continue to grow and assume the 
rigthtful place it has' always held."

The Proceedings open with the rei>ort of the Divine 
Service attended by the Grand Lodge in First United Baptist 
Church, Wolfville, June 25. The Grand Chaplain R.W. Bro. 
H. M. Buntain's Sermon is printed in full. It was both in- 
spiring and thought-provoking. Speaking on the subject 
"Changing Standards" he used the illusitration of a modem 
clover leaf design for intersectioms on modem highways, in 
oontrast with the simple cross-roads of earlier days, to show 
how involved is the age in which we live. In addition one 
must make decisions well in advance if we are not to become 
hopelessly confused. 

"Let none of us presume" he went on "that by ritualism, 
ceremony, annxial communications, and symbolism we fulfill 
the great principles of Brotherly Love. Relief and Truth. 
The forms and' roads of travel along life's highway have 
changed tremendously within recent years and many fine 
welfare organizations and governmental plans would seem 
ito make life and travel for all more carefree, but let us not 
fool ourselves. That which man most needs cannot be bought 
with money alone or fulfilled by proxy. . . , The higher 
values in life are best and most effectively transmitted by 
personal devotion and sacrifice."

The Masonic Home is the one big charity of Freemasons 
in Nova Scotia. TMs is the only Grand Jurisdiction in 
C^ada wMcii conducts such an institution. Progress was 
made during the year and the Home operated with a small 
suirplus. The Golden Jubilee Fund in support of the Home 
is still some distance from its objective. 

The year 1962 marks the 225th anniversary of the in- 
itiation on November 14, 1737, in St. Johns Lodge, Boston, 
of Major Erasmus James Philips of the Fortieth Regiment, 
the founder of the first Lodge on Canadian soil. It is also 
the centenary of the present Annapolis Royal Lodge, No, 33. 

In the absence of the Grand Historian, his report was 
presented by M.W. Bro. R. V. Harris. He stated that there 
had been a great revival of interest in Masonic History in 
Nova Scotia. New Caledonia Lodge No. 11, Pictou, observed 
its 150th anniversary and four celebrated their centenaries. 
No fewer than an even dozen histories were completed or are 
in preparation. 



OHIO— 1961

Lodges. 671. Membership, 281,341. Loss. 1,052. 

The Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Ohio 
as,sembled in the Sports Arena, Toledo. The members of 
the Grand Lodge sang "America," "God Save the Queen," 
ajid "Two Countries by the Sea." The last time a Grand 
Lodge session was held in Toledo was 1928. 

The Grand Master received an increasing number of 
requests for the holding of meetings and oonferring of degrees 
out of doors. In view of the numbers the Advisory Committee 
considered the matter and concluded that all such meetings 
which members of the Oommittee had attended had been 
properly tyled and worthwhile. It was, therefore, agreed 
ithat the D.D.G.M. for the District where it was proposed to 
hold such a meeting should make the necessary checks and 
arrangements. 

The Committee on History hopes to have ready for ne3ct 
year at least one article on the general subject of Ohio Free- 
masonry in the Civil War. 

The Special Committee on Lodge Size Limitation did not 
make any definite recommendations but did put down several 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 61 

paragraphs on the pros and cons of the matter. Smaller 
Lodges, they agreed, have approximately the same attend- 
ance as larger ones. Consequently, a larger percentage of 
members does seem to attend in smaller Ixtdges. A greater 
percentage of members can take part in smaller Lodges. 
And active members are interested members. 

The Committee cited the success of the many Lodges in 
London, England. The approximately 1,500 Lodges there 
axe, with few exceptions, small, the average being about 100 
members. It is not unusual for them to have almost one 
hundred per cent attendance. 

On the other hand, in Ohio, smaller Lodges have trouble 
with finance. The maintenance of Temples would be more 
difficult and since many Temples already are fully occupied 
each night, provision of the extra accommodation would be 
a problem. 

The Committee could not agree on the most desirable 
size. They did suggest, however, that further study be made 
of the quesition along the lines of limiting the number of 
petitions a Lodge can accept in a given time rather than to 
limit the actual number of its members.

The official name of this Grand Lodge, established in 
1909, is The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free 
and Accepted Masons of the State of Oklahoma. During the 
year nine cornerstones were laid, four for new lodge build- 
ings, and one each for a high school, a public school, a court 
house, a Methodist Church and a building at a state peni- 
tentiary. The number and variety of these occasions suggests 
a wide popular acceptance of Freemasonrj' in Oklahoma. 

Thiough there has been a decline in membership, progress 
has been made in increasing interest of the members in 
various educational activities. The Grand Secretary believes 
that suspensions for non-payment of dues are entirely too 
•Mgih. He points out that each member of the Craft in 
Oklahoma is actually a member and stockholder in a large 
corporation consen'-atively Avorth at least $2,500,000 and 
caadng for nearly 200 persons who are not able to care for 
themselves. 

The roll of Lodges contains Canadian, No. 22. meeting 
in Canadian with 57 members, and Ottawa, No. 478, meeting 
in Pidher, with 138 members.

Lodges, 192 Membership, 44,172. Loss,206. 

The title page of the Proceedings of the Grand Lodge of 
Ancient Free and Accepted Masons of Oregon shows that 
the Grand Lodge can trace its origins through Missouri, 
Tennessee, North CaroHna, the District of Columbia and 
Maryland to the Grand Lodge (Modems) of England and the 
Grand Lodge (Ancients) of Pennsylvania, 

The Masonic and Eastern Star Home, said the Grand 
Master, is in dire need of adequate financing. Over the 
years many brethren have given devoted service and many 
improvements were made during the year. Extra rooms 
were provided and furnished. Salaries were increased. But 
the increase in cost of operation proved to be a severe strain. 
The home has a capacity of 101. 

The Grand Master ruled that a District Deputy might 
hold an instaMation on Sunday "provided the Lodges were 
Tuot opened." 

Amendments to By-ilaws approved show that thirty 
involved increases in initiation fees or dues. Several of the 
increases amounted to fifty per cent. One dispensation per- 
mitted Lakeview Lodge, No. 71, to assess each member $5.00 
per year for three years, with the option of paying the total 
amount the first year. The revenue is to be used to com- 
plete the Lodge Hall. 

The Grand Secretary published a revealing statistical 
table which shows that the largest Lodge in Oregon has 
1,193 members, the smallest 30 and the average 230. 

With a history extending well over a century, it is well 
that the Grand Lodge has a loyal and dedicated Grand 
Historian, R.W. Bro. J. Wilkinson, who has worked tirelessly 
for many years to get the record down for futuire gener- 
ations. While much work remains to be done, printing is 
the final ohjeotive. 

The Portland Masonic Serv^ice Bureau is an active body. 
One example of their efforts is to be seen in the sixty-nine 
funerals they arranged and conducted for sojourners. 
Incidentally, one was a member from Saskatchewan. 

The Clackamas County Blue Lodge Association presented 
a memorial in which they stated in part, "With deep ap- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 63 

preciation of the able and constructive part Freemasons and 
Freemasonry have played in the oommunity, state, and nation 
and with a belief that during' the past two decades some 
complacency had crept into Oregon Freemasonry, we the 
members of Clackamas Coimity, urge all lodges to take in- 
ven'tiory of their actual accomplishments in inculcating 
Masonic principles, tenets, and interest in their members. 
We believe that no organization can long endure that does 
not continually strive to do something for the betterment of 
its members, and for the well being of mankind. 

"It is not the pui-pose of this memorial to catalogue a 
list of complacencies or prescribe a list of cure-alls. The 
extent of the problem, and its many facets, would make such 
action on our part presumptuous; but there is one phase, 
regarding which we have a strong: conviction, and respect- 
fully submit for your earnest considei-ation. We believe that 
the interest and active participation of a lodge's members 
is in inverse ration to its size;- the smaller the lodge, the 
greater the interest and active participation of the members. 
We, therefore, humbly and respectfully petition this Grand 
Body to encourage and, where necessary and advisable, 
offer assistance in the formation of new lodges. This 
petition is submitted with the sincere and fei-\'ent hope 
that such action will, in due course, result in compact active 
lodges; lodges in which Masonic principles, tenet?, and obli- 
gations will be most meaningful." 

In conclusion one cannot do better than give a short 
paragraph from the Grand Master's Address: 

"With all due respect to those who have said that they 
wonder what the destiny of Freemasonry is going to be in 
these perilous times, I can tell you without reservation, 
that I feel that there is as much need for our Fraternity 
now as there ever has been in any period of the past. I can 
report to you that our Fraternity in the Sate of Oregon is 
in good shape and will progress with a gloriou's future."

On reading the Proceedings one is immediately struck 
by the esteem in which the Grand Lodge is held. This esteem 
is evidenced by the numbers of benefactors who remetnber 
the Grand Lodg'e. while alive and in their wills. One bequest 
had an approximate value of $700,000, the income on which 
is to be used in the various charities of the Grand Lodge. 
Others were by no means minor. 

Indeed, the entire' report stresses benevolent institutions 
such as the Masonic Homes, Elizabethtown. and the Thiomas 
Ranken Patton Masonic Institution for Boys. TTie Masonic 
Homes have 715 guests, of whom 265 are in hospital. The 
salary budget alone is $1,000,000. 

The Instructor of Ritualistic Work reported that he and 
"the Regional Instructors have met together several times 
during the year to check proficiency so that uniform instruc- 
tion is maintained throughout the sitate. Regnlar \isits have 
been made to the Schools by the iRegional Instructors at least 
twice during the past year. The Instructor of Ritualiistic 
Work is also continuing his visits as time permits. . . . 

"It is our opinion that these Sectional Meetings are creat- 
ing- a sincere interest in the ritualistic work and we are con- 
fident that the standard lof proficiency and excellence will 
be raised to a new hig-h pefrformance."

The Grand Master reported an increase in membership. 
At the same time he gave a breakdown of the membership 
which showed that 51.5% are Filipinos, 42% Americans 
5.1% Chinese. .1% Japanese, and all others 1.3%. Pour new 
Lodges were constituted and five organized under dispens- 
ation during the year. 

An architect for the new Grand Lodge Headquarters was 
retained. Since $3,500,000 will be required for imported 
materials alone, it can be seen that this is a major project. 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 66 

Thef Hospital for Crippled Children had a successful year. 
One generous bequest was received. 

A ritual in Filipino has been completed. 

Thei Grand Lecturer made an astute observation on mem- 
bership, at the same time revealing ^i extremely high regain 
for the Institution: 

"Certainly we would like to have a bigger membership, 
but our methods have denatured Freemasonry, We made it 
too easy for them to join thei Fraternity. We have destroyed 
that glamour which charmed our older brethren. . . The 
so'lemn dignity that was synonymous "with Freemasonry is no 
more. Oommittees on Investigation are lax and indifferent 
and loften make favorable report on material that should be 
barred from our doors. 

"The Fraternity must be made up of strong Masons, 
only men of established integrity and upright principles, men 
who can honestly subscribe to the things that Masonry stands 
for. Our door must be well guarded if we are to get the 
kind of men who uill avail themselves of our Masonic op- 
ix>rtunities when made Master Masons. Our strongest bonds 
are with those \vho come through the door of their own free 
will and accord. 

"Many Lodges are confronted with the nagging problem 
of inactive members in big numbers. Many new Master 
Masons never return to the Lodge after they have beten 
raised. They refuse to pay their dues. Evidently they do 
not care about Masonry. They joined the Fraternity per- 
haps out of mere curiosity, or beicause they could not refuse 
their friends who had asked them to sign the petitions. 

"We should not try to retain such poor material. They 
must be immediately dropped from the roll. We^ should 
ever endeavour to prevent such misfits from joining our 
ranks. 

"Let us exert our utmost to restbore to Freemasonry that 
dignity, that devotion to ideals, that adherence to the princi- 
ple, that loyalty to things right and good, that made Free- 
masonry the greatest of all Institutions."

Although the Grand Jurisdiction is not large in numbers 
it makes many demands on the Grand Master. His travel® 
with the Grand Secretary and others on both shores of the 
St. Lawrence and to Gasi>e tell something of the wide range 
of Freemasonry- in Quebec. A visit to St. Paul's Lodge No. 
374 on the Eng.Hh Register, in Montreal, when that Lodge 
tendered an infon.ial reception to the Depufty Grand Master 
of the United Grand Lodge of England, Lord Cadogan, also 
reveals something of the development of Freemasonry in 
Quiebec. 

The Grand Ohaplain of Montreal District No. 4, R.W. 
Bro. W. A. Bockus, spoke in a forthright way on Masonry 
and religion and also on the position of Ohaplain. 

"I sometimes wonder if Freemasonry is not becoming a 
substitute religious outlet. A half century ago, it was stated, 
'There is an almost universal recognition by Masons of the 
spiritual nature of their work. They feel the sacred char- 
acter of their sj^mbolic ritual. Their simple way of express- 
ing this is in saying that he who has Masonry needs no other 
religion.' This is all wrong. For years now I have felt that 
if our Order lived up to its tenets for just one year we 
would have such an irresistible force that we would change 
for good the whole course of history. If we served the Ghurdi 
with but half the zeal we serve the Lodge what a difference 
it would make. . . . 

"We tend to belittle the overflowing religious side of our 
Masonic life. We put the Master in the brilliant East, the 
Junior Warden in the warm and sunny south and the Senior 
Warden in the radiant West, but we consign the Ohaplain to 
the cold bleak north, the Masonic Place of Darkness . . Even 
at this Grand Lodge he is an embarrassment because no one 
reaJly knows what to do about him. He is neither sheep nor 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 67 

goat. My own feelings are that in Masonry iJie Office of 
Chaplain is like a third thumb. To me the work he does 
should, by lo^c. be done by no less than the Master of the 
Lodge or at least a Past Master. This is not Masonic heresy. 
The Office of Chaplain of a Lodge and I quote. 'Is one which 
is not recognized in the ritual of the United States of 
America, although often conferred by courtesy.' The Office 
of Grand CSiaplain is a very modem one having been in- 
stituted on the 1st of May, 1775 on the occasion of the laying 
of the foundation of Freemason's Hall in London." 



A reader of the address is left with a feeling that the 
ouitspoken declaration was designed to draw attention to 
the two final paragraphs which mtist have been as fine as 
any spoken by a Grand Chaplain in some time. 

"Centuries ago the medieval monks had a Latin_ expres- 
sion, 'Laborare est orare', To labour is to pray; or in otiier 
words labour iS' worship. This divine doctrine that labour is 
worship has been advanced and maintained as a leading 
dogma in Masonry. No other institution sets it forth so 
boldly. We hear constantly that Freemasonry inculcates 
Morality; it fosters the Social feeling; it teaches brotherly 
love; but let us never forget that while over its vast temple 
there is inscribed in symbols of living light the great tnith 
that 'Labour is worship', we must never forget that this 
worship is intended to prepare us better to take our places 
in our synagogues and churches and with our training help 
others along the road that leads to God on high. 

"Let us labomr together, and let us worship in spirit and 

in truth that in so doing we may bring honour to our Order, 
strength.to our synagogues and churches and above all spirit- 
ual welfare to ourselves wherein we may endeavour to emulate 
those earlier operative Masons in their noble and pious work, 
T)ut with the higher purpose of turning every human heart 
into a temple dedicated to the worship of the Great Architect 
of the Universe, remembering that while time will crumble 
into dust the most massive walls, and level with the grounds 
the loftiest spire, the Spiritual edifice is eternal; and that 
those who carry the peaceful but ennobling banner of morality 
and science are the true children of the Great Light and ^e 
real benefactors of mankind." 

The Reports of the EHstrict Deputy Grand Masters are 
full and interesting and reveal the healthy condition of Free- 
masonry in Quebec. The District Deputy of Quebec and 
Three Rivers, for example, stated: "I was again impressed by 
the fact that much more of the work is now being performed 



68 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

by younger members of the Craft; their knowledge and 

ability is to be highly commended." 

Similarly the District Deputy of Montreal District No. 4 
wrote: "The true spirit of Fraternity was always evident and 
I think that the Craft has a right to be proud of the quality 
of its membership, regardless of the walk of life of the 
individual. One could not but feel that the Lodge members 
were the kind of persons with whom it is an honour to be 
associated." 

The year saw the publication of a history of Freemasonry 
in the Province of Quebec, 1759 to 1959. Written by R.W. 
Bro. A. J. Milborne, a noted Masonic scholar and historian, 
it is an excellently documented and autOioritative record. 

The R.eport on the State of Masonry commented on the 
changes times have wrought. 

"In concluding this report, we feel tihat a general refer- 
ence should be made to problems facing the Craft due largely 
to the lapse of time. The changes brought about on social, econ- 
omic and cultural conditions, as well _ as movements in popula- 
tion have been greatly accelerated since the two wars through 
which our Country has passed in this century. We are faced' 
by problems of policies and administrative procedures ^ in- 
itiated many years ago, under completely different conditions 
than those existing today. Many of these policies and pro- 
cedures need rethinking so as to adapt them to modem re- 
quirements. Needless to say, the Landma.rks of the Order 
are inviolate and must never be tampered with, but within 
this framework. Masonry, too, must be progressive, and these 
problems must be faced up to. Incidental to this is 1iie duty 
of Lodge officers to study more carefully the Book of Con- 
stitution to familiarize themselves therewith. Emphasis 
should also be laid on the necessity of study of the published 
Annual Proceedings which always contain important com- 
mittee reports and more particularly the Grand Mastw's 
annual report. These often contain rulings which, upon 
adoption and confirmation by Grand Lodge, have bin<Kng 
effect throughout the Jurisdiction.** 

The Report was most sanguine. Losses in membership, 
generally speaking were in rural districts. Gains in metro- 
politan or urban centres more than offset the losses. But 
more important than gains in members is evidence "of an 
increase in vitality and activity in a substantial number of 
Lodges."^ The Committee concluded: "Where vigorous and 
imaginative leadership is forthcoming, not only are can^- 
dates attracted, but many of the older members are having 
their interest rekindled." Certainly, a reader of these Pro- 
ceedings is left with the feeling that Freemasonry in Quebec 
is getting vigorous and imaginative leadership.

make in these days. "We all realize that at the present 
time there is a tremendous amount of unrest throughout the 
world. We as indi\'iduals, with the teachings we have re- 
ceived as Freemasons should take an active part in national 
affairs. We must see to it that those who are placed in 
power to rule and govern us are men of integrity and of high 
moral principles. It is very necessary today that only men 
of ability be placed in positions of po\^^r and authority tx> 
guide the destinies of our Nation." 

The Board of General Purposes is endeavouring to com- 
pile a pictorial record of all the Masonic buildings in the 
Grand Jurisdiction. To this end, owners of Temples have 
been circularized with a request for photographs of the front, 
side, and front approach to their Temples, also a graph plan 
to scale of the site, sho\^'ing the shape, size and position of 
the building on the land. 

A history of one hundred years of Freemasonry in Queens- 
land has been published. It consists of 320 pages of letter- 
press and seventy-two pages of illustrations. It is most 
reasonably priced. 

In the northern suburbs of the metropolitan area of 
Brisbane a desirable site has been acquired for the construc- 
tion of a new Temple. The new Temple will pro%'ide con- 
venient accommodation for at least twenty Lodges. Hereto- 
fore they have been meeting in local halls with all the in- 
conveniences of accommodation not designed or furnished 
for Masonic purposes. 

In connection with a proposal to elect the Grand Master 
by a postal ballot throughout the whole Grand Jurisdiction, 
the President of the Board of General Purposes gave a good 
account of various methods of election in the world and also 
the considerations involved in the Queensland method. 

"The method of selecting a Grand Master varies through- 
out the world. In one country the ruling Monarch is always 



70 GRAJs^D LODGE OF CANADA 

Grand Master. In other jurisdictions the retirmg Grand 
Master appoints his successor. Some reach the office by 
annual progress as a Grand Lodge officer. 

"I know of no jurisdiction inside Graft Masonry where a 
postal ballot is held. 

"In our case the Constitution lays it down that the Board 
of General Purposes shall nominate a brother for the office, 
but a proviso exists that it is open for any other qualified 
brother to be nominated, and which may be regarded as a 
safeguard and an acknowledgement of the supreme authority 
of Grand Lodge (Article 16). 

"This appears to have worked well over the many years 
of our existence as a United Grand Lodge, as on only three 
occasions has there been a contest for the office. 

"One of the reasons, no doubt, that prompted the design- 
ers of our Constitution to make it incumbent on the Board 
to nominate a Grand Master is that the Board is the only 
body competent to sift and know the background of any 
brother in the Jurisdiction. Consequently, when a nomin- 
ation is made by the Board, the Craft as a whole can have 
complete confidence that the nominated brother possesses 
the necessary qualifications to fill the honoured office." 

M.W. Bro. H. B. Milliner, after four years in office, in- 
stalled his successor M.W. Bro. John Paterson. During his 
Grand Mastership M.W. Bro. Milliner saw thirty-four Lodges 
consecrated, thirteen temples dedicated and five Foundation 
Stones laid. 

By any measure. Freemasonry is flourishing in Queens- 
land.

Socdety of Free and Accepted Masons for tJie State of Rhode 
I®land and Providence Plantations. 

Some Lodges on the Roll of Constituent Lodges are 
described as A.F. & A.M. while others follow the practice of 
using only F. & A.M. Two Lodges received their Charters 
from the Grand Lodge on April 26, 1793. Both had earlier 
Charters. One is St. John's, No. 1. Newport, the other St. 
Johns. No. 1-P, Providence. There must be some interesting 
history associated with these two numbers. 

This year the Grand Master instituted a new programme 
of opening an Occasional Grand Lodge in each District where 
he made a few remarks after receiving the Officers of the 
District and then introducing the speaker of the evening. 
Eight such meetings were held. 

One Lodge helped maintain the frequent interchange of 
visits between Lodges in the United States and Canada by 
visiting at Ormsto-wn, Quebec. 

The Dedication and Constitution of Lafayette Lodge, 
U.D., Arnold Mills, was a notable event for this Lodge vr^s 
formed to reactivate an old Lodge of the same name, number- 
ed 19. which went out of existence during the Morgan episode, 
about 136 years ago. The Grand Master remarked: "With 
the declining membership in our City Lodges, I feel that if 
Masonry is to survive, we must constitute more Lodges in 
our rural communities." Here the Grand Master appeared 
to be expressing a view different from that of many Grand 
Masters who have referred to the decline in rural populations. 
His continuing remarks amplified the statement and he went 
on to say that Lodges should be established in the "Dormi- 
tory" towns outside the large cities where members could 
attend Lodge and maintain interest in Masonry near their 
ho^mes. 

It is a matter of surprise to see that one of the most 
active Lodges in the Grand Jurisdiction is Berlin Lodge, No. 
46, Berlin, (Germany. During the year the Lodge held 53 
meetings. The Lodge was constituted in 1948 and has 447 
members. 

The cornerstone laying at a Baptist Church brought out 
clearly the changes that have occurred in 140 years. The 
Church was first built in 1821 at a total cost of $2,000. The 
new building in 1961 cost $175,000. Provision is being made 
for a Sunday School of 460. The Grand Master used the 
occasion to remark, "We are grateful for the wonderful 
cooperation that exists between our Grand Jurisdiction and 
Churches of all denominations."

In telling of the Constitution and Consecration of Mystic 
TUe Lodge No. 213 and Sherwood Lodge No. 214, in ^hie In- 
stitution of Esterhazy Lodge U.D. and the amalgamation of 
two others' the Grand Master Oibserved: "Tlhe virility of man* 
made institutions is measurable in part by their capacity to 
adapt to changing conditions and needs without impairment 
of the fundamental principles upon which they are founded. 
The Masonic Order is no exception." 

The comparatively recent settlement of Saskatchewan 
is shown by the news concerning fifty-year anniversary 
celebrations of Lodges. This year eight reached the half 
century milestone. Three joined the elite group with a 
history of seventy-five years. Six Lodges, in all, have at- 
tained this age. 

The Grand Master was concerned to note that sixJty-eigihit 
Lodges were not represented at the 1960 Communication. 
Indeed only eighty three Lodges were in regular attendance 
during the past five years. 

The Committee on Condition of Masonry reported that 
the overall situation Masonically is basically sound and 
healthy. There are trends towards deterioration in several 
of the smaller Lodges situated in towns that have been ad- 
versely affected by shifts in population. 

In commenting on membership figures, the Committee 
wrote: "Masonry, we believe, likes to perform the good 
deed quietly and without publicity. Its teachings offer an 
introduction to a way of life that will make its members 
better citizen® and that is something that those of us who 
beHeve in Masonry can exemplify in our everyday life and 
in Ifliat way attract those worthwhile members of any com- 
mumty to seek membership in our Order, Not quantity but 
quality should be our aim, and so brethren let us not be so 
concerned about lack of membership gains that we are tentpb- 
ed' to let down the standards of our requirements for member- 
ship, or deviate in any way from Masonic teachings and 
landmarks. Those are the things that attract those that aire 
good membership material. Let us keep ttihem intact even at 
some possible sacrifice in members." 

Reports of the D.D.G.M.'s indicate that there has been 
much done in making Lodge premises more attractive and 



FRATERINAL CORRBSPONDBNCE T8 

comfortable, inside and out. A large percentage of Lodges 
also are keeping their historical register up^tx>-date. 

M.W. Dro. C. MacL. Pitts gave a thought provoking and 
inspiring address at the Annual Banquet.

At the Quarterly Oonunimication, February 2, 1961, it 
was announced that the Grand Master Mason accompanied 
by the Grand Secretary was about to set out on a long and 
arduous trip to Pakistan, India, Thailand, Hong Kong, 
Manila. Malaya, Western Australia, New Zealand and on liie 
way back Colombo, Aden and Malta, all regions with Lodges 
under the Scottish Constitution. 

On May 4, the Grand Master Mason reported on his visits 
to District Grand Lodges in those countries. The Grand Lodge 
has twenty-four District Grand Lodges, literally scattered 
over the four quarters of the globe, and the Grand Master 
Mason and Grand Secretary have now visited twenty-three. 

The first Masonic engagement to Erect and Consecrate 
Lodge Maihbed-i-Suleman, No. 1580 in Pakistan ran into 
difficulties. Through an oversight the occasion was scheduled 
during the Month of Ramazan when all Moslems fast from 
sunrise to sunset. Since most of the members are Moslems 
and could not atitend, the ceremony was postponed. 

At the meeting of the District Grand Lodge of Pakistan 
there w^ere three Volumes of the Sacred Law open. The 
columns and gavels of the Master and Wardens were made of 
ivory. 

Lodge St. John, No. 1072, Bangkok "intrigued" the Grand 
Master Mason, Here he installed as Master Bre. Gunnar 
Casperson, a Dane. The Lodge has fewer than sixky mem- 
bers but it includes a number of nationalities, including 
several Thais. This small Lodge is one of the most gener- 
ous contributors to the benevolent funds of the Grand Lodge. 

At Hong KJong the meeting was in Zetland Hall, accord- 
ing to the Grand Master Mason, one of the most beautiful 
Lodge Rooms he had ever seen, and he has seen many. The 



74 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

Hall was built after the Japanese occupation by Berfhren 
of the English, Irish and Scottish Constitutions. Here the 
visitor installed as Master in Lodge Naval and Military, No. 
848. a Chinese, Brother Ong Teonsr Seng. The occasion led 
the Grand Master Mason to add "Wherever I ha^e gone, 
Brethren, I have spoken about the Universal Nature of our 
Science, and how convinced I am about the part that Free- 
masonry is playing in bringing about a better understanddng 
between all nations, no matter of what colour, creed or 
religion." 

It is unfortunate that a more detailed account of Iflias 
journey cannot be presented here. Btit since the narratdve 
covers sixteen tightly packed pages even a digest i® impos- 
sible. Suffice it to say that the Grand Master Mason found 
Lodges of the Grand Lodge of Scotland in flourishing con- 
dition and working in 'harmony with Lodges of other Grand 
Jurisdictions. 

During the absence of the Grand Master Mason and 
Grand Secretary, from Scotland, the Senior Grand Warden 
died. He was R.W. Bro. Robert Cohen. His association 
with Grand Lodge extended to close on forty years. He was 
a devout and orthodox Jew, proud of his race and proud of 
being of the priestly class. He? loved mankind and his Church. 
His high position in Scottish Freemasonry further bore out 
the Grand Master Mason's remarks regarding the Universal 
nature of the science.

Lodges. 205. Membership, 27,775. Gain, 445. 

In this Grand Jurisdiction the Grand Masters frequently 
hold office for several years. Recently, they have bee^ re- 
elecbd twice making a total of three years in office. The 
roll of Grand Masters shows that the bench and legal pro- 
fession have been well represented in the Grand East. Of the 
total of eighteen Grand Masters, eight have been Judges, 
two K.C.'s and one LL.B. 

During the year one new Craft Lodge" was constituted 
and Consecrated. The average membership in all Lodges is 
136. 

The Board of General Purposes emphasized its concern 
at breaches of the policy of the Craft to avoid Masonic 



FRATElRNAL CORRESPONDENCE 75 

functions on Sundays and of "the absolute prohibition in the 
matter of secular functions on those days. The promotion 
under thef auspices of one or more Lodges, of picnics or other 
outings for members and their families on Sundays is neither 

seemly nor permissible." 

The Grand Inspector of Lodges .^^aid that reports from all 
his inspection staff indicated that Officers of Lodges were 
performing their work satisfactorily both \%ith respect _ to 
ritual and ceremonial. He added, somewhat wryly, "During 
most of our visits t^e retiring of candidates at the ap- 
propriate time was observed, although on a few occasions 
we concluded this was solely due to our presence." 

The Grand Jurisdiction is outstanding in the woi-k of 
benevolence. The War Relief Fund is maintained for the 
relief of incapacitated brethren returned from war service. 
A system of scholarships has been set up for necessitous, not 
necessarily briWiant, pupils. An annual appeal is made for 
Christmas Cheer for occupants of the Cottage Homes. 
Twelve double-unit Cottage Flafis were completed for the 
accommodation of aged Freemasons and aged wives in neces- 
sitous circumstances. Plans are going forw^ard to expand 
the housing scheme. 

The Grand Master expressed his gratitude for the com- 
plete loyailty and support he had received. He expanded on 
the subject. "Loyalty is an essential characteristic of the 
true Freemason, and one of the important loyalties enjoined 
upon him is that which is due to Grand Lodge. When a W.M. 
tenders his gavel to the Grand Master or his representative, 
or when a Lodge at the festive board honours the toast 
of Grand Lodge, theTe is a pledge by the Lodge and its mem- 
bers of this obligation towards the goveraing body of Free- 
masonry. Grand Lodge is the parliament of Freemasonry 
and its legislative powers are very wide. It is, however, a 
most democratic body on which all Lodges are represented. 
You, Brethren, tonight constitute Grand Lodge, and every 
member present has a constitutional right to speak and vote 
on any matters properly brought before it. But when once 
Grand Lodge has made a decision or edict it is, of course, the 
duty of everT,' brother to unhesitatingly accept and obey it. 
A brothermay have opposed such decision; he may perhaps 
feel that it was unwise, but it is his clear duty as a loyal 
member of the Craft to bow to constitutional authority. I 
have no doubt that this duty is and always will be fully 
recognized and cheerfully observed by all the brethren." 

The Grand Master paid particular tribute to the senice 
rendered to the Craft by the Deputy Grand Master, the Grand 
Wardens and other Grand Officers. There are 205 Lodges 
in the Jurisdiction and very few conduct their own install- 
ations. The task falls on the Grand Lodge Officers who 



76 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

year after year carry out the important work. The two 
Grand Wardens between them carried out 149 installaitions 
and attended many other Grand Lodge ceremonies. 

South Avistralia evidently has a strong and active Grand 
Lodge and Freiemasonry, in general, is flourishing. 



SOUTH CAROLINA— 1961

Lodges, 303. Membership, 50,078. Gain, 758. 

The official name of this Grand Lodge, The Most Wor- 
shipful Grand Lodge of Ancient Free Masons of South 
Carolina. The omission of the word "Accepted" is unusuaL 

The Grand Lodge will hold its Two Hundred and Twenty- 
fifth Annual Communication in 1962. The Grand Master 
recommended that the Grand Lodge make an appropriation 
from the General Fund of a sum sufficient to commemorate 
this important milestone in the history of this Jurisdiction 
in a fitting- manner. Mindful of the role Charlestion played 
in ttie biitth and growth of Freemasonry in Colonial America 
as well as the present Grand Jurisdiction, he also recom- 
mended that the Annual Communication be held in that city. 

Age, however, has not weakened the Grand Jurisdiction 
as the gain shown here reveals. The erection of new 
Masonic Temples and the planning for even more encouraged 
the Grand Master to believe that growth and prosperity 
would continue. Dispensations were issued for two new 
Lodges and one was constituted. The Grand Lodge met no 
fewer than ten times to dedicate Temples and eight times 
for the laying of cornerstones. One of these occasions was 
the laying of a cornerstone of an Episcopal Parish House. 

It is a matter of interest that the membership includes 
1,182 ministers and 1,611 forty-year members who are ex- 
empted from payment of Lodge and Grand Lodge dues. 

Seven Lodges observed their centennials. Since one of 
these Lodges was No. 101, it would seem likely that the 
seventy-five Lodges which precede this one numerically 
most likely are of like age. 

One out-door meeting held in a rock quarry for the 
twenty-first time has become traditional. Brethren attend 
from many States of the Union and from Foreign Jxiirisdio- 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 77 

tions. Althoug-h *he weather was threatened a "large host" 
attended. 

The Grand Master, in addition to his many other duties, 
wrote letters to 584 newly raised Master Masons. His diary 
showed 142 meetings attended in the Grand Jurisdiction, 
most involving an address, besides many visits outside. 

The flourishing condition of Freemasonry in Sovwfch 
Carolina is not an accident. The only problem in liie Juris- 
diction seeing to be non-attendance at meetings. 

On September 9-10, 1960, the Grand Master met with 
Grand Masters or their representatives in Atlanta, Georg^ia, 
for the purpiose of organizing a Conference of Grand 
Masters of the Southeastern States. Alabama, Florida, 
Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and 
Tennessee were represented. Louisiana planned to partici- 
pate following the organizational meeting. 

The first annual meeting of the newly organized Con- 
ference was held at Pascagoula, Mississippi, November 9-11, 
1960. The Grand Master of South Carolina read a paper 
on "Better attendance through Masonic Education." The 
next meeting was scheduled to be held in Florida. 

The Special Committee on a Grand Lodge Building re- 
ported fully on proposed sites and recommended two sites in 
fee City of Columbia, the State Capital. 



SOUTH DAKOTA— 1961

Grand Master, 1961-62 — M.W. Bro. G. F. Westover 

Lodges, 168. Membership, 20,098. Loss, 222. 

The name of this Grand Lodge, Grand Lodge Ancient, 
Free ajid Accepted Mas'ons of South Dakota, includes the 
word "Ancient" as does North Dakota. This is to be expected 
as both were formed from the earlier Grand Lodge of Ancient, 
Free and Accepted Masons of Dakota Territory, in 1889. 
South Dakota, however, numbers the Annual Communication 
as 87th dating from the first Grand Lodge, whereas North 
Dakota numbers its as 77th, dating from the division. This 
is logical as the site where the first Grand Lodge was con- 
stituted in 1876 is in South Dakota. 

Each year the Grand Master api)ears to put forward a 
special •theme. TTiis year, the Grand Master, at all meeting?. 



78 GRAND LODGE OF CANADA 

stressed the fact that "we as Masons should be very active 
in our Church, Sunday School and Civic Life . . . Tlie time 
has come when the Masons must take a serious stand in 
the affairs of the community in which they live." 

The Grand Lod^e Library had a busy year. The students 
of Augustana and Sioux Falls College make regular use of 
the libnarj' during the school months. Such use cannot be 
usual wath most Grand Lodge libraries. 

The Grand Historian has had correspondence with some 
of ithe Lodges about the desirability of placing bronze plaques 
to mark important Masonic events or facts. One such 
project is the setting up of a highway marker indicating the 
existence of the Grand Lodge monument at the site where 
the Grand Lodge was constituted in 1875. The Grand 
Historian correctly ;states'. "When the place where a first 
Masonic meeting of any of the older Lodges is involved, the 
hist'orical fact becomes miore and more interesting as the 
years wheel by. Increasing difficulty in determining just 
where ?ome of these affairs occurred makes this type of 
activity highly important." He suggested that for events of 
state -wide interest the Grand Lodge could bear the entire 
expense; if local, the expense could be shared with the local 
Lodge. 



TASMANIA— 1961 

70th Annual Communication — February 25 

Half-yearly Communication — August 20 

Grand Master — M.W. Bro. H. V. Jones 

Lodges, G8. Membership, 8,777. Gain. 19. 

The Grand Inspector of Lodges reported: "New Candi- 
dates being admitted seem to be of a very high standerd; ttihe 
continued exhortiations of our Grand Master and other 
Officers in regard to their selection appear to be bringing 
the desired result." These remarks coupled with a gain in 
membership speak well for the condition of Freemasonry in 
Tasmania. 

The Grand Master outlined developments which he hoped 
would occur in his Grand Jurisdiction. As he himself said 
the list was long, but it was most thought provoking in its 
completeness. 

The first point called for a true perspective of Free- 
masonn,-. "There is a growing tendency," he said "for the 



FEATBRNAL CORRBSPONDBNOE 79 

social side! to dwarf the true significance of Freemasonry, 
for a social fiinction to assume greater importance than day 
to day living, with the result that the Brother who stresses 
the spiritual values of Freemasonry tends to lose interest 
in his Lodge." One hardship he felt is the visiting programme 
in Hobart and Launceston. To Wm it seemed out of pro- 
portion and to reduce the time each Master could devote 
to his own Lodge. 

Other points dealt with were: Re-dedication night, 
Active support of the Church, and Masonic Education. 

At the Half-yearly CJommunication, the Grand Master 
stressed the great importance of instructing Candidates before 
permitting them to proceed bo higher degrees. He continued: 

"My second point concerns the ever increasing amounts 
spent on Lodge refreshments. When I remember that if the 
world's hungry people were arranged in single file, they 
would form a line extending round the globe twenty-five 
times. I wonder whether it would not demonstrate a better 
Masonic spirit, if in the balance sheet of each Lodge' the 
amount given to charitable causes and to Grand Lodge for 
its administrative expenses should not always be at least 
ecrual to the cost of refreshments. 

"I commend the zeal of those Brethren who devote so 
much of their time to the work connected with our Masonic 
libraries. To them it must often appear a thankless bask, 
because so few Brethren evince the slightest interest in the 
treasures on these shelves. A Masonic library is not a 
luxury, but a necessity of life to all true Freemasons. Books 
are the windows through which the soul looks out. Cicero 
once said: 'To be unacquainted with what has taken piece 
before you were bom is to be always a child, for what is 
human life, unless memory is able to compare the events of 
our owTi times M-ith those of bygone ages.' I hope that every 
Mason in the jurisdiction will become actively interested in 
our libraries and thoroughly acquainted with the story of 
our rich heritage." 

During the year the Grand Master's purpose in his re- 
marks and addresses emphasized and stressed the value of 
Freemasonry to the individual. As he said: "Its glorious 
truths^ applied to each individual life quicken and enrich it, 
and give it a purposeful objective and a sublime ideal for 
which to strive. When Freemasonry is interpreted in this 
manner, its potentialities for good are imlimited, but any 
lower interpretation makes it an empty shell."

Grand Master, 1961-62 — M.W. Bro. R. L. Marimon 

Lodges, 31. Membership, 6,830. Loss, 4. 

The M.W. Grand Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons of 
Utah is the full and correct name of this Grand Lodge. No 
fewer than seventeen Past Grand Masters of Utah (there are 
twenty living) attended the Annual Communication. Though 
admittedly the Grand Master is elected for a one year term 
only the figure seems remarkable. Of the three absent two 
had moved from Utah and the third was ill. The oldest 
living Past Grand Master was' elected in 1916. 

The reports of Lodges showed that all are in sound 
financial condition. The Grand Master iKwnted out the need 
for Lodges to keep sufficient reserves. His observations 
on loss of members through non-payment of dues are well 
considered. "It is questionable whether the members dropi)ed 
are in financial difficulties or have lo&t interest and prefer 
to be dropped rather than demit. Our Secretaries should 
make every effort to keep all members in crorrent condition. 
The first year of delinquency is the most important because 
each year thereafter the member is less inclined to bring 
his dues up to date, resulting in the loss of a member." 

The roll of Lodges, beginning with Wasatch Lodge, No. 1, 
Salt Lake City, chartered originally by the Grand Lodge of 
Montana (as No. 8) in 1867, shows that only one charter has 
been surrendered in the history of the Grand Lodge, and that 
in 1888. 

The Masonic Research Club, completing its second jeax, 
produced an excellent paper on "The Examination of a visit- 
ing Master Mason." In Utah only Master Masons are eligible 
to visit. In addition to strict trial and due examination, no 
Mason may be permitted to visit a Lodge in the Grand Juris- 
diction unless he produces written evidence under the seal of 
his Lodge and attested by the Grand Secretary's signature 
and seal of the Grand Lo^ge under which ttie Lodge of the 
visitor is working. However, when the visitor comes from 
a Grand Jurisdiction where such certification is not required 
he does not have to produce this evidence. 

An interesting suggestion is that while at least one 
member of an examining committee must be completely 
familiar with the procedure, other members preferably should 
be less well-informed. Brethren can thereby learn and gain 
experience in Masonry. "In this way the examination serves 



FRATERNAL CORRESPQNDENOE 81 

a diial purpose. Not only does it screen unqualified pei«on« 
from the meetings, but it serves to stimulate interest among 
the newer members." 

Among other points the article points out that the aim 
of the test is to keep non-Masons out of the meetings and 
never to embarrass a less skillful Brother. "Examining 
comjnittees should always remember that if a %-isitx>r is 
qualified we want him to meet with us. He may be an eager 
candidate for affiliation." While unaffiliated he is deprived 
of the privileges which the Fraternity provides and the 
Lodges lose the benefit of his aid and fellowship. 

The Grand Orator, according to the Proceedings, gave 
an eloquent address. It certainly must have been eloquent, 
but it was much more than that, being a clear, comprehensive, 
well-reiasoned and historically accurate interpretation of the 
tosues involved in tihe Civil War.

Lodges. 103. Membership, 17,954. Loss, 191. 

The M. W. Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons 
of the State of Vermont is the full designation of this Grand 
Lodge. The Proceedings are most attractively printed and 
tihe information clearly and fully presented. 

Convinced "that a better informed Mason is a more 
valuable brother" the Grand Master set up a schedule of 
Schools of Instruction through the Masonic Education Com- 
mittee. The results were gratifying and the Grand Master 
recommended an expansion of the programme. F\rrther- 
more, the Grand Master expressed his view that the Lodges 
had not been using the Past Masters group as well as they 
might have. He concluded "In order to make more meaning- 
ful a State Past Master?' Association, we need and can use 
District Associations of Past Masters." 

More than one Grand Master, during 1961. stressed the 
importance of keeping up Lodge property. M. Wor. Bro. 
Rowe expressed the same \new extremely well: "One item 
that causes me a great deal of concern, and I feel .«;hould 
be brought to your attention very forcibly, and that is the 
condition of the physical Lodge as we look at it from the 
street. So many of our Lodge Halls are not painted, are 
not well kept up, the lawns are not mowed, there is very

il&ie laridsicapdng done about them, and all in all it is not 
^a good advertisement for the fraternity. It seems to me that 
a painting 'bee' or a cleaning-up 'bee', or something of that 
sort, held in many of our Lodges would have far reaching 
conseciuences. The slogan 'Paint up and Clean up' could be 
adiopted for a challenge for each subordinate Lodge -wihich; 
has a building." 

In line with this thinking the Grand Lodge spent a 
great deal on repairs to the Grand Lodge Temple and also 
acquired an adjoining property. The new addition has 
greatly improved the looks and value of the whole unit. 

The Grand Master had a word to say about the ritual. 
"In siome Districts' there has crept into the Past Master's 
Degree some informality which demonstrates a lesson. 
However, in other Districts this ceremony has develoi)ed 
beyond the bounds of propriety. Anything which desecrates 
the dignity of a man is improper Masonic degree work." 

The Committee on Masonic Jurisprudence reported that 
the 1947 Code of Masonic Law (equivalent to our Consti- 
tution) had been revised and printed. There was some 
discussion as to the advisability of binding the Code in loose- 
leaf form. To this reviewer at least, it seems fortunate 
that the loose-leaf proposal would have added prohibitively 
to the cost and that the Committee therefore decided to bind 
the Code, with a pocket inside the back cover in whidh to 
file amendments.

1' The Grand Master could not be present at the March 
Quarterly Communication when his re-election was pro- 
claimed as he ihad been appointed Administrator of the Com- 
•.jnonwealth of Australia. This appointment involved his resi- 
4ence in Canberra. The Pro Grand Mastel", M.W. Bro. His 
Honour Judge Nelson, read a message from tihe Grand Master 
in which he paid tribute to the "splendid team" of Grand 
.Lodge officers. He also;, paid high tribute to the Grand Lodge 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 83 

Choir. M.W. Bro. Sir Dallas Brooks was first dected Grand 
Master in 1951. 



Unfortunately, severe illness prevented the Grand Master 
from attending the June Quarterly Communication. He made 
a g-ood recovery, however, and was able to be present at the 
December Communication when he was again elected. 

The Grand Inspector of Workings reported that a high 
standard of dignity and ceremonial was being maintained in 
the Grand Jurisdiction. To assist in maintaining uniformity 
the exemplification of the working: of the three degrees was 
held in eight Temples. 

M.W. Bro. Rev. C. T. F. Goy was appointed Pro Grand 
Master for the ensuing twelve months. He spoke feelingly 
of the honour which had been done him. At his initiation on 
August 20. 1924, it never occurred to him in his "wildest 
imagination" that one day almost thirty-eight years later 
he would occupy such a high and exalted office. 

"*I can only attribute this to four important factors" 
he said. "Firstly, to my intense love of the Craft, which 
began wdth my introduction to it and has grown deeper %\'ith 
the passing years. Secondly, for the continued joy I have 
found in serving it in many different capacities. I say that 
with nothing but feelings of humility. It has provided me 
with a wonderful field of ministry which I have tried to 
exercise for the advancement of the Order and for the deep- 
ening of our faith in the noble things for which it stands.. 
Thirdly, and here I ackniowledge' a very deep debt I owe for 
the affectionate interest, valuable instruction and inspiring: 
friendship and patience of so many of my Brethren during- 
the passing of the years, in guiding and directing me in the 
antient landmarks and procedure of our Order. Fourthly,, 
and above all, to the great guiding' and invisible hand of Him 
Who is the Supreme Architect, who pjlays so vital a part in 
th« planning of our lives and the s'haping of our destiny. He 
it is Who leads us on." 

The Pro Grand Master added: "The second thing I 
wish to say is something not often said, I am sure, to a group 
of Past Grand Masters. It has been a matter of great amaze- 
ment to me that so many men holding high and extremely 
busy positions in the community — men held in high regard — 
men of integrity and leadership— -are attracted to our Order 
and to accept the highest office in our Constitution. These 
Past Grand Masters go on serving: the Craft long after they 
have gone out of active office. They are ever ready to offer 
guidance where it is often necessary in an Institution of this 
kiiid and continue to take their part in our Ceremonials."

VIRGINIA— 1961 

183rd Annual Communication — February 14-16 

Grand Master, 1960-61— M.W. Bpo. C. M. Flintoff 
Grand Master, 1961-62— M.W. Bro. E. C. Glover, Jr. 

Lodg-es, 339. Membership, 69,631. Gain, 516. 

The full name of this Grand Lodge is the Most Wo^rship- 
ful Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons of 
the Ocrnimonwealth of Virginia. 

One Emergent Communication, to pay the last tribute 
of respect to M.W. Bro. R. R. Cooke, Grand Master, 1951-52, 
and an Occasional Communication, for the purpose of laying 
the cornerstone of Christ Episcopal Church, Richmond, were 
reported. The laying of cornerstones under Masonic auspices, 
as can be seen, is still common in many Grand JurisdictionB 
in the United States. Since churches of various denomin- 
ations- follow the practice there is a suggestion of the wide 
acceptance of Masonry in those bodies. 

One of the highlights of the year was Grand Master's 
Day at the Masonic Home. More than five thousand brethren 
and the members of their families attended the dedication 
of the new East Wing of the Charles H. Callaghan Building 
and to take part in the seventieth anniversary celebration of 
the Masonic Hiome. 

The Grand Secretary, M.W. Bro. A. B. Gay, made a 
Tevealing analyses of initiates by age groupings. He found 
that the largest percentage of men coming into Masonry fall 
in the grouping between 30 and 39 years. During the earlier 
years of this century many young men joined in their twenty- 
first year. Now the group 21-29 falls below the group 40-49 
in the percentages. He concludes from these facts a "know- 
ledge of the age grouping of lour new brethren should enable 
us to plan a more effective educational campaign to fit their 
needs and to arouse their interest in the deeper meaning 
which Freemasonry should have for each of us. Ouirs is a 
Society of mature men who are interested in the problemis 
which confront this generation and age. They also have 
need of some of the finer things of life such as fellowship 
and the opportunity to develop their Masonic friendships. 
Perhaps our planning should lie along these lines and we 
should strive to create a corps of Lodge officers who are as 
skilled in planning and programminer their meetings as 
they are in the conferring of the degrees. We have attained 
a high degree of proficiency in one of these areas and per- 
haps we should now start on the other." 

Res^arding membership, the Grand Secretary rightly 
says, "While membership gains are not a measure of the 



FRATERNAL CORRESPONDENCE 86 

success of a Masonic Lodge, or for our Grand Lodge, we are 
concerned about maintaining our effectiveness as one of the 
basic moral institutions of our society. Gains and losses 
should be studied by us in order that we might discover if 
there is anything we can do to make our Freemasonry more 
effective. We cannot and must not solicit petitions from 
the profane, regardless of the station and status of the 
individual. There ai-e however, hundreds of Masonic Sojourn- 
ers in almost every metropolitan area in Virginia, and these 
brethren have lost contact with Freemasonry because they 
have moved from the circle of their mother Lodge. We 
should make some effort to contact them and endeavour to 
secuTe their active participation in the work which Free- 
masonry is trying to do. We might also seek to devise some 
metihod of following the brethren to other locations ^ when 
they move from the jurisdiction of the mother Lodge." 

It is well to note, however, that year saw a larger gain 
in membership in Virginia than in 1959 or 1960.

Although the Grand Jurisdiction includes sixteen Lodgw 
in Alaska, the official name is The Most Worshipful Grand 
Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons of Washington. 

During the year no fewer than forty Lodges were grant- 
ed pennission to attend Divine Ser\-ices clothed as MaJ^ns. 
The rulings and decisions show that Lodges from Washing- 
ton visited in Trail, Vancouver, and Ladysmith, B.C. 

The Masonic Home, at Zenith, is in a flourishing state. 
Membership totalled 142. The Committee on Endwwment 
for the Home reported that the Endo\^'ment had reached ap- 
proximately three million dollai"s. The annual budget is 
$242,628. 

As usual the Fraternal Correspondent M.W. Bro. Fred 
Winkels wrote a thought-provoking Foreword to his reviews. 
T\vo paragraphs stand out. 

"Let our Lodges provide 'Light' for their members in 
accordance with time-honored customs and designs and thus 
fulfill their true purpose. When this is done effectively,

competition from other siources will be minimized, pur mem- 
bers become interested and attentive and an ever increasing: 
number of desirable men seek admission into our Fraternity 
"because of a favorable opinion concerved of the Institution.* 

"Instead of telling people how good we are, let us show 
the world that an application of the principles of Brotherly 
Love, Relief and Tiiith will provide a fair, equitable and co- 
operative solution for our tangled economic life, tha;t the 
sincere practice of the concept of the Fatherhood^ of God 
and the Brotherhood of Man will lead us out of the wilderness 
of religious bigotry and race conflict, remove the tragic 
tihreat of war and runuors of war and provide the only basis 
for a just and lasting' peace."

This Grand Jurisdiction includes the word "Ancient" in 
its name: "The Most Worshipful Grand Lodge of Ancient, 
Free and Accepted Masons of the State of West Virginia.** 



On May 10, 1965, the Grand Lodge will celebrate its 100th 
Anoiiversary. A special Communication will be held in 
Wheeling. A history of Freemasonry in the State will be 
published for the occasion. Each Lodge has been asked to 
prepare a history, following a well-organized outline which 
has been drawn up. 

During the year many improvements were made at the 
Masonic Home, which housed fifteen men and ijiirty-seven 
women. The per capita cost was $1,753,00. The' average 
age of the residents is just under eigthy-three. A picture 
of the Home shows it to be a large and attractive building- 
standing in a heavily-treed landscape. 

The Committee on Grievances and Appeals repooited 
"Peace and harmony prevail throughout the Grand Jurisdic- 
tion. No matters have been presented to the Grievances and 
Appeals Committee at this annual communication or during 
the interim jveriod."

Attendance at the August Oommunication was so great 
tihat many brethren, some having come a great distance, 
could not find standing room. 

Plans are under way to mark the sixtieth year of Grand 
Lodge. One suggestion is to build a new and worthy Free- 
masons Hall and Headquarters in Perth. 

In his annual report, the Grand Inspector of Workinp 
reported: "The 1960-61 survey of the Craft, through the 
ranks lof Inspectors of Workings has revealed a comfortable 
satisfaction that in almost every avenue of their official 
Craft acti^^ty, a healthy state of affairs exists.

The Grand Lodge Fi-ee and Accepted Masons of Wiscon- 
sin is concerned with the changing pattern in Masonic homes. 
Guests in the homes are becoming older than they once were, 
requiring greater care. The Grand Master pointed out that 



88 GRAND LODGE OF CANAiDA 

with the changing times' it migiht be well to take a realistic 
view lOff the financial ability of the Grand Lodge to provide 
facilities which may be dupMcating accommodations already 
available in couiity institutions. Masons are paying their 
share in the support of these public facdldties throuigih taxes. 

The Grand Lodge took no action on the pax)posal to set 
up a "District Deputy System" described in last year's 
Reviews. 

Special dispensations show that Acacia Lodge No. 329 
vdsdted Oonnaugiit Lodge No. 511, Fort William, Ontario, and 
that two Lodges- were granted pel-mission to allow two con- 
gregations, one Episcopal and the other Congregational, to 
use their Lodge rooms for religious puiTK>ses until their own 
buildings were completed. 

The Grand Lecturer once again reported a most success- 
ful year in the Schools of Insti-uction. The work remains at 
a high level throughout the Grand Jurisdiction, He also 
reported on various proposals to consolidate certain Lodges 
wihere shrinking population seemed to suggest such action. 
He gave his opinion that as long as' a small corps of dedicated 
and devoted Masons could keep the Light of Masonry buimdng 
they shouUd be encouraged. Consiolidation sihould be post- 
poned as long as iwssible. 

The wide range of Masonic interest revealed in the 
Proceedings published by various Grand Jurisdictions can- 
not be better illustrated than by the report that a generous 
Brother had presents "a full-blooded, registered Holstein 
bull," to the Masonic Home farm at Dousman. 

A majority and minority report were brought in by the 
Committee on Temple Financing. The former concluded: 
"Looking at the entire matter, your committee feels that, 
properly and closely supervised, temple facilities other than 
the lodge rooms, could be used by outside non-Masonic 
groups with a resulting improvement in relations between 
Masons and mon-Masons plus a partial answer to the increas- 
ing heavy financial burden which templeHjwning lodges are 
facing." 

The minority concluded: "We cannot fail to realize that, 
since it is costing more every year to operate the local lodges, 
the Grand Lodge and the Masonic Home at Dousman, it will 
necessarily cost more to remain a Mason, it will cost more 
to become a Mason .... The answer is plain enough — 
each member must be called upon to place a higher value 
upon his Masonic ties by paying a greater shore toward the 
financial needs of his Lodge."

WYOMING— 1961 

87th Annual Communication — August 28-29 

Grand Ma;ster, 1960-61 — M.W. Bro. R, C. Witherspoon 
Grand Master, 1961-62 — M.W. Bro. C. R. Snyder 

Lodges, 55. Membership, 13,083. Gain, 101. 



The Grand Lodge of Ancient, Free and Accepted Masons 
of Wyoming convened one Special Communication to lay the 
cornerstone of a new elementary school building. At the 
Annual Communication ten of the eighteen surviving past 
Grand Masters attended. 



The Grand Master was pleased to be able to report that 
Masonry is growing in Wyoming. Indeed the staitistical 
table in the appendix to the Proceedings shows that since 
1874 there has been a net loss in only nine years and seven 
of those were in the 1930'?. The total membership of 
13,083 is the highest the Grand Jurisdiction has ever at- 
tained and best of all the Lodges "seem verp active, in good 
financial condition and are complying with the ritual and 
Code." 



Fees for dispensations except those for attending church 
services are $5.00. Two dispensations were for holding 
out-door meetings in the mountains. One dispensation, 
for which a fee was charged, was "To Harmony Lodge 
No. 24, Lufik, for changing its meeting place from the old 
hall to their new Masonic Temple in the same city." 



The Grand Master was asked the good question, whether 
it would be' permissible to advertise a Lodge in hotels, motels 
and on road signs, gi^'ing the name, number and date of 
meetings and a welcome to visiting members. The Grand 
Master ruled that notices in hotels and motels seemed to fall 
into the same category as notices in ne\\^^apers and were 
permissible. Notices on road signs, he felt, should be dis- 
couraged. 



Plans were under way to celebrate the one hundredth 
anniversary of the first Masonic meeting in Wyoming on 
Independence Rock, on July 4. 1962. Included in the plans 
was provision to include "the purcMse of a bronze plaque 
to replace the one originally installed by Casper Lodge. 
No. 15, which was later stolen." 



APPENDIX "B" 

GRAND MASTER'S BANQUET 
HELD IN THE CANADIAN ROOM, ROYAL YORK 
HOTEL, TORONTO, ONTARIO, JULY 18th, 1962. 

M. W. BRO. R. W. TRELEAVEN: 

A long time ago, approximately 2000 years ago, a very 
wise man and great teacher said "a prophet is not without 
honour, save in his own country." Our speaker tonight is 
much more familiar with the Book in which those words 
are recorded, I am sure. The fact remains that on the 
statement in general it may be true there are exceptions to 
most rules, and there are exceptions to that statement that 
a prophet is not without honour save in his own countrj' 
and the situation tonight is certainly an exception to that 
rule Isecause our speaker tonight is with great honour not 
only in other countries but in his own country. 

Our speaker tonight is no stranger to any of us; he 
has been highly honoured in his own city, highly honoured 
in his church, he's Archbishop of Algoma. he's Metropolitan 
of Ontario, and in our Grand Lodge he has been highly 
honoured by being one of our Grand Masters, and I am suTe 
that the Past Grand Masters who are here will agree with 
me that he has been one of the best. 

Now it seems to me. my brethren, that it was just 
not quite right that Archbishop Wright should be asked to 
speak in other jurisdictions, should travel far. be well re- 
ceived, and that we should not, at least once in awhile 
in our Grand Lodge and on this occasion, hear him. I was 
just delighted when, under certain urging, — ^because 
he w^as very modest about it and he said "oh. they all know 
me, they have all heard me" — ^but under certain urging from 
me and other Past Grand Masters when he agreed to be 
our guest speaker tonight. And so it gives me more pleasure 
to introduce him to you than I think it would give me to 
introduce to you some stranger from a long wav off. 
My brethren. I am delighted to give you our own M.W. Bro. 
W. L. Wright. (Applause). 

M.W. BRO. ARCHBISHOP W. L. WRIGHT: 

Most Worshipful Sir, Distinguished Guests, and Breth- 
ren all: I would be a strange person indeed tonight not to 
be touched by that most gracious introduction which has 
been accorded me bv our mutual friend and esteemed Grand 
Master. I feel confident that you will agree with me that, 
at the very outset, I should make this statement that he 
himself exemplifies in his high office, a quiet dignity, a 
warm-hearted fellowship, and a sincere desire to manifest 
those Masonic virtues which characterize our Order. 

(Applause). 



APPENDIX "B" 2 

I am also deeply touched tonight by the generous wel- 
come accorded me by all of you, my friends. Yes, I'll go 
so far as to say my brothers. It is like coming home again. 
I see so manv of you here tonight that I have had the privi- 
lege of meeting during the time that I was Grand Master, 
and at this late date once again I acknowledge with sincerity 
the many kindnesses granted to me when I visited your 
respective Districts. 

The Grand Master said something tonight about a 
prophet being without honour. That reminds me of a story 
about a Premier of this Province who was returning to his 
own home town a few days after his election. Only four or 
five days had elapsed and he was on his way down to this 
village not too far away from where he was brought up. 
So, as he approached the station, he just casually put his 
head out the windovr — I think he anticipated of course that 
the village band would be there and all the many friends — 
but he .just saw two people on the station platform, one 
was the station agent at the far end who was throwing on a 
couple of cream cans on the baggage car, and at the other 
end of the station leaning against the building was an old 
chap who was lacking in some of the mental qualities that 
bring one into the world of reason. Well, the train stopped; 
the Pi-emier jumped out a little taken aback; he went up to 
old George and said "Well, George, T suppose you knew I'd 
been elected Premier?" George said "oh ves." The Premier 
said "Well, what did the folks sav?" Old George put his 
foot up against the side of the building, spat out his chew of 
tobacco and said "Oh, they just laughed." (Laughter) 

That was one reason why tonight I was rather reluctant 
in accepting the kind invitation to be present as your speaker. 
As a matter of fact I'll give you the real truth of the matter 
as to how I am here: A few months ago when we were 
arranging for this Grand Communication we came to the 
time when we would discuss on the agenda the nature of this 
programme tonight and. of course, as usual I guess I spoke 
out of turn and I said "Well, whatever we do. keep the calibre 
of entertainment un and make sure vou get a misrhty good 
soeaker because this is one of the hiehlights of the Annual 
Communication." (Laughter). The GranH Master sat there, 
innocent looking you know, and said "Well, brethren, let's 
get down to business: we come now to this whole business 
of the Banauet. who shall we jret as the Speaker?" My so- 
called friend and brother. M.W. Bro. Heam. in a crisp and 
businesslike manner, spoke un and said. "I'll move that M.W. 
Bro. Wright be the speaker." (Lauehter). I said. "Oh yes, 
that's what you think" — anyway, I'm here as you can see. 

That just reminds me of the coloured T)arson down in 
the southern States who was preaching to his congregation 



3 APPENDIX "B" 

for three-quarters of an hour on the whole subject of the 
waters of salvation being free. He said, "You know, 
brethren, the waters of salvation are free, the waters of 
salvation are free" and he reiterated this time and again. 
At the end of his sermon he turned to his elders and said 
"And now we shall take up the collection." One of the elders 
got up and said "Parson, I thought you said the waters of 
salvation were free." The parson said "Yes. my good man, 
but we gotta pay for the pump." (Laughter) Well, I'm 
paying for the pump here tonight by having spoken out of 
turn — I can see that. 

But, be that as it may, I am deeply touched by being 
here, it's like coming home and addressing you, my good 
friends, all of you, who have evinced so many kindnesses 
to me. 

"Breathes there the man, with soul so dead. 
Who never to himself hath said. 
This is my 'own, my native land! 
Whose heart hath ne'er within him bum'd 
As home his footsteps he hath tum'd 
From wandering on a foreign strand?" 

I am home tonight. I do not feel at all nervous as some 
of the Grand Masters who were thinking I would be. I'm 
at home. I feel that amongst you I have the greatest 
sympathy and tolerance and understanding and intimate 
friendship and that together, in reality, we are brothers 
indeed. Therefore, it is a great joy and one of the highest 
honours that shall ever be accorded me to have the privilege 
to speak to you tonight on a subject which I think is of 
great importance, and that subject I call "the Eternal 
Qualities in Freemasonry." 

THE ETERNAL QUALITIES IN FREEMASONRY 

FTeemasonry to me will never exhaust itself for the 
simple reason that I have the greatest joy of edification 
in my reading of Masonic books in trying to understand 
some of its philosophies. It is, as I know and, as some 
people have rightly said, a group of men who meet together 
as a club, that it's something more; it is a fellowship in 
which the spirit of goodwill permeates the lodge rooms 
Avhenever we gather together; it's that but it's something 
more; it is a philosophy of life' that gives to man that in- 
spiration that lifts him from the mundane things of life and 
grants to him something of those eternal qualities that give 
significance to all true and successful li\'ing. 

It is a philosophy so simple that a man who is a Mason 
with a limited academic potential can assimilate those 



I 



APPENDIX "B" 4 

qualities. It is so profound that even some of the most 
outstanding Masonic rights have never been able to probe to 
the depths the great lessons of Freemasonry. It is so 
universal that wherever you go over the face of the globe 
you will discover, as I did just before Christmas when in 
India. Masonic brethren who are trying to exemplify, to the 
best of their ability, those enternal qualities which are so 
sorely needed in our day and age. 

It was a wonderful experience for me when I was at- 
tending the Third Assembly of the World Council of Churches 
in New Delhi, India, to be there at the same time as the 
formation of The Grand Lodge of India, to share together 
with my brother Masons — over 1400 in number at the time — 
in this "great thought that they together with myself in our 
own limited capacity were trying, to the best of our ability, 
to show to the world that there are those etenial qualities 
in Freemasonry that the world needs, and that together 
we can accomplish those ends. 

Thus it is tonight that I take advantage of this op- 
portunity of presenting to you and asking you to think 
with me seriously of tliose eternal qualities in Freemasonrj-. 
What are they? What is their relevance for our day and 
age? Because, my brethren, unless Freemasonry, as a 
philosophy of life believing in the Fatherhood of God and 
the Brotherhood of Man, has some contemporary relationship 
to present day society, then it is out of date, then it has no 
particular concept for our time and age. 

And if you were to ask me what are those four etenial 
qualities I would give you. in order that you can remember 
them, four words and the first word is Faith, there is nO 
doubt about that. Freemasonry through the Volume of the 
Sacred Law brings to man the great truth abou: God, 
secondly the great truth about man, and thirdly the great 
truth about human destiny. These are qualities which are 
so sorely needed to be understood properly at the present 
time: 'Faith in God; Faith in Man; Faith in Human 
Destiny. 

What do we as Freemasons believe about God? It was 
so beautifully expressed. I think, and so beautifully out- 
lined in that' wonderful Hymn that we sang this morning, 
"Until the hills around do I lift up my longing eyes . 
What do Freemasons through the Volume of the Sacred 
Law believe about God? Here's what we believe: here s 
what's inculcated into our hearts and minds and souls; here 
is the teaching, that God the Great Architect of the Universe 
is the creator and sustainer of this universe. He is Almighty; 
this i-: His world: i+'s not man's world: God is in control, 
npver let u'; forget that. And because God is Almighty and 



5 APPENDIX "B" 

is the sustainer of this universe and is in control, there are 
certain obligations resting upon those who are made in His 
image. 

What do€s Freemasonry through the Volume of the 
Sacred Law say about man? It says this; regardless of 
creed, colour, culture and all of these other characteristics, 
that deep down and basically all men are brothers because 
all are made in the image of God. 

What does Freemasonry through the Volume of the 
Sacred Law say about human destiny? It says this; when 
man dies, man will be taken into the Father's presence pro- 
viding he has observed certain moral laws, but if he deliber- 
ately desires to follow his own selfish ways, he will do 
nothing else but banish himself from the presence of the 
Most High. 

What is the situation as we look around contemporary 
society today when we think and look at the first eternal 
quality of Freemasonry, namely, faith in God? Russia and 
her satellites maintain there is no God; they say that man 
occupies the centre of this universe; that wherever you 
look amongst her satellites you will see discouragement when 
it comes to acknowledge the majesty, the holiness and all 
these qualities which pertain to the Most High. 

When you look into contemporary society, what is 
the situation regarding man? So many in our day and 
age seem to feel when the wheels of industry move in 
monumental immensity, that man is only a cog in a machine 
— which is a damnable lie, Man made in the image of God 
possesses a sacredness of personality. Wherever you look 
you will discover so many who say that man is only a 
puppet on the stage of civilization and his only significance 
is insofar as he will advance the welfare of the State. What 
is the lie about human destiny? It is this: That when you 
die that's the end of you; let's eat, drink and, therefore, be 
merry. 

But the challenge tha^t calls out today to all Free- 
masons regarding the first eternal quality, namely Faith, is 
this: That as a Mason is taught through philosophy and 
through the drama of that philosophy about God, that he 
will revere His name and will dedicate his day, the day of 
the Lord to the Lord's service. I may dilate a little more 
fully on that later. 

What is the challenTe of Freemasons today when it 
comes to this thought about the place of man in societv? 
It is this; to I'ecognize that every man regardless of his 
creed, colour, culture, background, that that man is made 



APPENDIX "B" 6 

in the image of God and that, therefore, that man must be 
treated with respect, and that the man who goes about his 
daily avocations will express in his daily life the spirit of 
integrity which will reflect something of the great teachings 
he holds regarding the belief and the truth about God. 

What is the philosophy to which a Freemason must hold 
regarding human destiny? In a word it is this: It is mot 
to be so interested in being a going concern as to be 
interested and to be concerned where you are going. There, 
in short, is something that we need to keep in mind in our 
day and age, as in every day and age, because faith is an 
eternal quality. 

We read in our Masonic ritual about two great kings, 
Solomon and Hiram of Tyre, who were resplendent in their 
background and they had opportunities of going to palaces 
and meeting other kings and so on. But there was a man 
who was a widow's son who never knew what it was to 
enter the portals of a palace, and yet by the life and witness, 
according to the legend of Freemasonry, he exemplified all 
three qualities of a firm faith in God, a deep respect for man 
and a reverence for human destiny. 

The first eternal quality in Freemasonry is, has always 
been, and must always be in the future, Faith — that is my 
fii^t word — Faith. 

The second eternal quality in Freemasonry, as I see it, 
is Work. I need not take time to illustrate my point, but 
suffice it to say that as the day is divided into several parts, 
each part is given to certain particular calls, a man is called 
to work. I know full well what Jerome K. Jerome meant 
when he said "I am so fascinated by work I could sit and 
look at it all day long." When I go down some of our 
highwavs and obser\'e some of our construction crews. I 
know they have similar sentiments. <■ Laughter). But that 
is not my main point in this illustration. 

The fact is that work from time immemorial in the 
annals of Freemasonry has always brouerht before man a 
philosophy of life that he needs to hold. The original masons 
were stone-masons; they built great cathedrals; they had 
the will to work; they had the tools to work with; they 
carried with them the compass, the plumb rule and all these 
other things. When the temple was being built they car\-ed 
out the stonework from the quarry miles and miles away 
and brought it over, chopped down the trees in Lebanon 
and brought the timber there; the women folk did all the 
TieedleAvork. 

There is relevance between work in its Masonic impli- 
cations to our day and age. and I shall give to you as my 



7 APPENDIX "B" 

brother Masons four basic principles in work that I think 
we need, not only as Freemasons but as men in contempor- 
ary' society need to hold, and the first is this: That every 
man has the right to work; a man not given employment 
spends his months or years with those gifts that God has 
bestowed upon him lying dormant; he begins to lose his 
own self-respect and those great gifts which were to be 
placed to the advantage of society become atrophied. Man 
not only has the right to work, he has the duty to work; 
there must be no drones in the community. Nothing should 
bar any person in society from working except sickness and 
old age; this holds for everybody. 

We have ample evidence of this, Masonically, as you 
look back in the annals of Masonic history to show how 
everybody, regardless of their stand in society, everybody 
had something to do. And the third principle, as I see it, 
in the relevance of work as an eternal quality of Free- 
masonry in our day and age is this; that the conditions under 
which a man works must be conducive to the development 
not only of his own personality but for the well-being of his 
family. 

Every man has the right to marry, to bring up a family, 
to educate his children; every man must have those con- 
ditions where he will have a living wage. We cannot imply 
that we have a sound belief in the morality of Freemasonry 
with anything less. And the fourth principle as far as work 
is concerned as an eternal quality in Freemasonry in its 
relevance to our day and age is this; that a man has the 
right and the duty to give a full day's honest work to his 
employer if his employer is to guarantee him the proper 
conditions in which to work. 

I will leave it with you as to which of these four 
principles need to be stressed more and more today, but 
there is a tendency all too often that man will skip in his 
work; he will not be sufficiently honest; and he will not 
realize that, whatever he does, no matter how menial it is, 
there's no such thing as menialitv in work because it's all 
done to the glory of the Most High and it is done for the 
motivation of integrity. 

Therefore, I submit to you tonight, my brother Masons, 
that I believe that the second great eternal quality that 
must be preserved in Freemasonry in its relevance to 
society in our day and age is Work — Faith — Work. 

The third eternal quality, as I see it, which should mark 
all Freemasons and i"? prominent Masonic philosophy, is 
charactpr or realitv. Character is the cornerstone of personal 
and social well-being 



APPENDIX "B" 8 

I am getting rather weary when I find so many people 
say that these tumultuous days of which we have entered 
are due to science; I don't believe it at all. I think that if 
science had had its own unhindered way. man would be 
happier in many respects than he is at the present time. 
It's not science's fault. The scientist has harnessed the 
lightning and the waterfall; the scientist has sent man into 
outer-space; the scientist has brought gadgets to our homes 
to make life worth living. I maintain there is something 
far more serious than that. The great problem of our day 
and age is that there is a sag in human character. Man 
has, it seems, everything to live with and nothing to live 
for. Man is unable to keep pace in his personal life with the 
great advantages which the scientist has brought to him. 

I remember Dr. Young a number of years ago telling 
the stoi-y of that great historian, H. G. Wells. When H. G. 
Wells depicted the life of a beautiful maiden named Ruth 
who went out into the fields of Boaz to reap the grain, and as 
Mr. Wells sits down with his pen he depicts her with all of 
her glory, integrity, marvellous spirit, and he says: "Doubt- 
less in our day and age in this Twentieth Centur>', we have 
much improved upon the signal that Ruth used so many 
centuries ago but" Wells said "we haven't improved upon 
Ruth." 

It was that great man, Tolstoy, the philosopher, who, 
when confronted by a young man who came into his office 
one day and was asked this question, he said: "What am I 
to do to make this world a better place in which to live?" 
Tolstoy sat back; he looked at him in the eye and pointed 
his finger at him and said, "Young man, if you desire to 
make this world a better place in which to live, the place to 
start is with vourself." 'That is eternally true. Wherever 
you look in the whole drama of Freemasonry and al! its 
ritual, you will discover the emphasis is placed upon 
character. 

Gibbons in the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire 
brings before us in a very timely manner the reasons for the 
decline of that Empire, circus and its pleasures, selfishness. 
greed, lust; and the contemporary historians of our dav of 
which Butterfield. Cambridge, is paramount, has shown that 
when nations find the moral disinteeration setting in within 
their country, it is not loner before thev become an ea.^v prey 
to those outside forces which they would have lauerhed at 
the years before. .A.nd I believe it is most timelv and fitting 
for me. as I stand before you tonicrht, to remind you of this 
great and paramount eternal quality of Freemasonry shown 
in all its parts, namely, character. 

There was an old Athenian philosopher who said: "If, 
what you want me to do is right I'll do it because it is 



9 APPENDIX "B" 

right; if, what you want me to do is wrong, I will not do 
it for all the gold in Athens." 

Better no vows in Masonry than hollow vows. Better 
no obligations in Masonry than obligations which are going 
to be shaken off within a matter of time. Better no words 
in Freemasonry than words which conflict with a man's 
own selfish opinions. The time has come when we must 
gird ourselves and take seriously to heart this paramount 
and important eternal quality, namely, character. And I 
cannot help, in my dual position that I occupy in the church 
and Freemasonry, to reiterate what I said a few years ago, 
namely, the relationship of the church to Freemasonry. I 
make no apology because I may duplicate this part. 

A man who is a good churchman will be a better 
Mason. Religion is the upward stretch of a man in reach- 
ing to acknowledge the sovereignty and the holiness and the 
majesty of God. Morality is the outward, horizontal, stretch, 
as no man can put his best into the morality, into the out- 
ward stretch, unless he has received the grace from the 
Most High as he exemplifies his duty in the upward stretdx 
of worshiping The Almighty. 

I therefore, tonight ask all of you, my friends, my 
brothers, never neglect the church or synagogue of your 
choice but ever to remember this; that if your faith in God, 
who is in conti'ol of this universe, is to be a faith worthwhile 
and meaningful, it is your duty, it is your responsibility, it 
is indeed your privilege, Sunday by Sunday, week by week, 
to v.-orship God in church in order to acknowledge His 
sovereignty and to receive His grace to go out and, in our 
case, be a better Mason. 

Thus we discover that those who have learned the 
secret of the upward stretch, together with the outward 
stretch, are those who have in part learned the secret of 
true living. Man is a being made in the image of God; his 
significance ultimately depends upon his relationship to 
God. 

Now I have one more point before I launch into business. 
I must tell you a story that I heard when I was over in the 
States a few years ago about a chap over there on a 
barnstorming tour; he was trying to become Governor of 
the State. He went to this small village and everybody was 
out to hear him and he got along fine; he got a iot of 
applause. After about the first ten minutes he ran into a 
little difficulty; he heard a stronar voice at the back of the 
hall sayinsr "too dull, too dull". Well, he got a little upset, 
gasped for breath but kept on going. About eight or nine 
minutes later he heard the words "can't hear ya". He was 



APPENDIX "B" 10 

getting a little more nervous still but he kept on going. In 
about another nine minutes he stopped for breath and all of a 
sudden he heard the words "too long". The Chairman came 
over and kicked him in the shins and said "don't pay any 
attention to him, he's just the village moron, he only tells 
what he hears everybody else say." (Laughter). 

Now it may be just possible that I take that moral to 
heart as the time rolls round, but I want to bring to you 
what I believe is the fourth eternal quality in Freemasonry 
that we might very well emulate, and especially in these 
days. This lie of Swinboume "Glory to man in the highest" 
of man in charge of things is wrong. 

This century of ours opened on an optimistic note. 
Robert Louis Stevenson brought it out; he articulated the 
mood when he brought to our attention these words; the 
world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we shall all 
be as happy as kings." Here we come at the present time 
and we discover the morass in which we are found and, 
therefore, the fourth eternal quality that I submit is the 
quality of brotherhood. 

The competition between totalitarianism and democracy 
is not the whole truth in our day and age. All of these in a 
competitive spirit don't spell out the whole story. What we 
are concerned with is this; it's either brotherhood or destruc- 
tion; that's what's involved. And, therefore, it behoves us 
all to realize that the quality of human trust is so important. 

The President of the United States of America, a few 
weeks ago, spoke about the doctrine of interdependence. 
True, there's no such thing as an independent nation any 
longer. Those of us who have travelled to the far east and 
other parts of the world have found that to be true. 

In the whole philosophy of Freemasonry the thought of 
brotherhood is always uppermost, but the challenge before 
us is to put it into practice, and put it into practice on the 
local scene, first of all, every man, regardless of what he 
does, when he gioes through the portals of a Masonic lodge 
he's on the same level. 

I like to, when I'm visiting around my diocese, go into 
gome of these little villages, go into a little store on the side 
of the road where, when you open up the door, the little 
bell at the top will jingle to let the proprietor at the back 
know somebody is coming in, go in there and sit down on 
an egg crate and talk to him; he's a Mason, and yet we sit 
there together and he says, "say, it's good of you to come 
in", and I say, "why sTiouIdn't I come on in, there isn't any 
difference." It's an illustration, surely, of the brotherhood 



11 APPENDIX "B" 

that should be exemplified that a man should go and speak 
to anybody else regardless of the position he holds because 
there you have the whole form of brotherhood — why shouldn't 
you? 

One man holds a conspicuous place in society. Another 
man's work day by day is not seen. That doesn't make any 
difference. What does make a ddifference is this, that 
there is an intangible bond between the man who holds a 
great responsibility and that other poor unfortunate who may 
think his work is menial, so that when their paths cross 
their personality meets personality; the one embraces the 
other as a true brother. "That is the outward exemplification 
of the true form of brothei^iood. 

May Divine Providence bring to us all those manifold 
blessings that ai'e so sorely needed in our day. 

My brethren, Most Worshipful Sir, I have submitted 
tonight for your consideration and action w'hat I believe 
to be four eternal qualities in Freemasonry, namely, faith, 
work, character, brotherhood — faith, work, character, brother- 
hood. If these qualities in our day and age through the 
media of our Masonic philosophies can be put into practice, 
then that brotherhood of ours will encircle the world and 
everywhere people shall see that we are not onlv strong 
Masons but really men of God, Thank you. (Continued 
applause) . 

R.W. BRO. JOHN IRVINE: (Deputy G.M.) 

M, Wor. Grand Master, M.W. Bro. Wright, Distinguished 
Guests and my Brethren: I don't think it's necessary for me 
to tell you that I approach this assignment at the present 
moment with a great deal of timidity. However. I do feel 
that I would be remiss if I didn't, on behalf of this Grand 
Lodee, express to M.W. Bro. Wright our extreme thanks 
for the wonderful message that he has brougOit to us tonight. 

On the other hand, my brethren, I think that I would 
be verv much out of order if I were to try to cover even 
one of the points that he has mentioned to us, becaus*^ it's 
just bevond the bounds of any possibilities of mine. I am 
sure that anything I might say would perhaps just detract 
from this wonderful message. 

I think that nerhaps the greatest token of appreciation 
that our speaker has received tonight could be summed up in 
two different items; one would be the wrapt attention that 
you gave him throughout his complete dissertation; and I 
think the second one would be the standing ovation that you 



APPENDIX "B" 12 

gave him, not only before he rose, because we knew him bjr 
reputation, but after he had delivered his message to us. 

So, brethren, I think I, perhaps, should content myself, 
on behalf tof each and every one of you here, by saying simply 
to him. first of all, that we love him very much, secondly 
that we are proud to have him as a member of this Grand 
Lodge, and that we are even more proud to have him as a 
brother and our esteemed Past Grand Master. 

On behalf of each and every one of you here, I would 
like to shake his hand. (Applause).
